Explore the power of wind and store the produced energy to activate the models. This kit includes 2 styles of windmill blades and a gear box with 3 different gear ratios to suit all wind conditions. The windmill blades are adjustable making it easy to charge the battery as fast as possible.
- Build 2 giant wind turbines of almost 1 meter high!
- Windmill blades designed to emulate real form.
- Two assembly blade angles; children can see which one is more efficients.
- Full colour 24-page instruction sheet with explanation of concept and models
- Requires 1 AA/LR6 battery or rechargeable battery - not included.
- Experiments : 5 to build
- Component : 77 PCS
- Colorful Manual provided
Suitabel Age :8 Years Old and above
PARENT'S CHOICES~SILVER AWARD WINNER
• Wind power source is the country's fastest growing energy industry.
• A well-designed 32 page manual includes experiments, lessons, and information about wind as power.
• Learn that adjusting the angle of the blades and the position of the turbine changed the collection and harnessing of the wind.
Review by the judge :
• Google buys clean electricity from wind farms, the SC Johnson Company uses wind turbines at its manufacturing plant in South Carolina; Microsoft, Ikea and Walmart use electricity harnessed from the wind. In short, wind - as a power source and an industry
- is the country's fastest growing energy industry.
Timely, topical and a breeze to explore, The Wind Power Renewable Energy Science Kit includes components to build and power models, and a well-designed 32 page manual with experiments, lessons, and information about wind as power, as a renewable resource and the surprise hit with our testers: The Beaufort Scale (on the manual's back cover) that details wind speed (km/h and m/s), a one to two word description (calm to hurricane), and the effects on land (no air movement to most severe storm damage and devastation).
First, our testers built the 3 foot tall wind turbine that powers a rechargeable battery. From there, our testers learned that adjusting the angle of the blades and the position of the turbine changed the collection and harnessing of the wind. They then made a fan. After cooling off from their accomplishments to date, they went on to build an electric car, a three-wheeler, an electric helicopter and truck. Building the vehicles prompted discussions ranging from science and weather to politics, and road infrastructure to kitchen appliances. Extended learning at its best.
