Fueled by the wind, this kit’s buildable turbine can power student-assembled projects in a number of clever ways, including a battery charger and electric truck. The newly redesigned turbine arms allow for experimentation with angles and placement, increasing learning potential and accuracy based on real-life, full-sized turbines. Using the kit’s instruction manual, kids can learn about how the sun makes wind, how a turbine picks up that wind, what kinds of places have stronger winds, and how turbines turn wind into electricity while following intensely detailed instructions to craft authentic solutions to environmental issues. While learning how to follow project blueprints, students can see how a turbine’s electric generator and rotor blades function to create an efficient system. They’ll even bring this correlation to life by using authentic wind power to move electric cars and see how wind can legitimately power an entire home!
