How can the breeze blowing across your face become the power that lights our homes? Since wind is unpredictable, can we rely on it wind power to operate machines?
Answer these questions and more with the Wind Turbine Science Kit for kids. Build your own model wind turbine, investigate how it works, and watch it create and store power.
Discover renewable energy, motors, generators, and electrical circuits! Harness the wind to make a colored light glow or motor spin. Find out how a super-capacitor stores wind energy like a battery. Then design and test your own wind turbine blades using provided materials.
The HST Wind Turbine Science Kit:
Unlike many wind turbine science kits, ours encourages creativity and invention. How is this wind energy kit different from other one-and-done kits? With four blade patterns, ideas for alternate materials, and extra experiment prompts.
Use the included digital multimeter to test different wind turbine blade designs. Measure voltage, amperage, and calculate power output. Extend experiments with included supplies. Use the second motor. Store electrical energy in the super-capacitor. Light three LED lamps with series and parallel electrical circuits.
What are the experiments?
Note: This kit works best indoors using a fan to simulate wind. Use a standing or box fan with multiple power settings. The pictured wind turbine was built from the components in this kit. Purchase extra Styrofoam trays to experiment with even more blade patterns. The Wind Turbine Science Kit includes easy-to-follow instructions and supplies for seven experiments.
