Wind Power 2.0 KitLearn about wind power and electronics with this kit from Thames and Kosmos! You'll get to build an electricity-generating wind turbine and gearbox and experiment with rotor blade design, gear ratio and wind speed. Use the turbine you build to store energy as electrical power in a rechargeable battery and then go on to build models like a glider and race car and power them with the stored battery power!
The 40-page manual gives step-by-step instructions for building the wind turbine and 8 different battery-run models, plus you can experiment on your own with the 133 parts included. The manual explains wind power and how it can be stored and used to run electronic devices. You provide one AA rechargeable battery. Ages 10-15.
/!\ WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
