Mini Wind Turbine Kit

  • Sale
  • Regular price $39.98


Harness the power of the wind and explore new forms of alternative energy with the TeacherGeek Mini Wind Turbine activity. Kids can capture energy from the wind to convert into electricity, cycling through the design process to invent unique and more efficient designs. It's truly green engineering, tested through inquiry and empowered experimentation. Recycling bin, 3-D printed or found materials can be used to create the blades, attached to the mount with project sticks and easily removable for challenges or labs. The hub can hold up to 6 turbine blades with adjustable angles. Learn how the shape, amount or pitch impacts the turbine’s electrical output. A favorite, environmentally-conscious activity for the kitchen table, schools, scout troops, summer camps, churches, 4-H groups or science fairs. Build once, tinker forever. Students need TeacherGeek tool sets to build their turbines. 2.7 Ohm resistors, alligator clip leads, and digital multimeters are required to complete the lab. Documents available for grades 3-5, 6-8, 7-12.

Sold in packs of 10 or individually.
