    Great Kit!
  • Michele

  • I bought 9 of these kits for use in my 8th grade science classes. The students loved them! There are so many ways to experiment--trying to get the bulbs to light, putting the generators (motors) in series or running them parallel, making blades that require less wind (they still spin and generate electricity when far away from the fan), or trying to make blades that spin faster than the provided plastic ones. A few plastic propellers broke after numerous uses due to enthusiastic students pulling them on and off to try their home-made blades, but I was able to easily replace them since they are sold separately as well. I am buying another kit for my son to use at home!
    Good scinece fair project

  • It was a good project for my scince fair. Works great but really does not tell the correct voltage.Overall good kit.

  • I purchased this kit for a 13 yr old for an upcoming project. He knows nothing about elec. or mechanics, therefore I was hoping that the kit would have clear and helpful instructions. It does not ! The kit should have at least had basic assembly drawings and why and how to assemble. A drawing would have helped the youngster to complete his project easier had there been step by step drawings or plans and why each step is important to the success of the whole.

      Wind Turbine Science Kit

      Build your own wind turbine with the items in this kit!

      This DIY Wind Turbine Science Kit includes instructions for seven experiments and an explanation of wind turbine science. Construct different blades using the included styrofoam trays and blade pattern templates. For further investigation, design and create your own blades using different materials!

      Find out about the power of the wind by building your own wind turbine! Learn about renewable energy, motors and generators, and electrical circuits in a fun, hands-on way. Watch a motor spin or an LED light up with the wind's power, see how a super capacitor can store energy from the wind like a battery, and design and test your own wind turbine blades using the materials in this kit.

      Note: This kit is best used indoors, using a fan to simulate wind. You will need a standing or box fan that has multiple power settings. The pictured wind turbine requires assembly and was constructed using the components in this kit.

      The materials in this wind turbine kit provide an opportunity for design, testing, and analysis. For example, the digital multimeter allows you to measure the voltage and amperage and calculate the power output of each wind turbine blade design. A second motor, a super capacity, and three LED lamps provide for extended experimentation with series and parallel electrical circuits and power storage.

      Want to use this kit for a science fair project? See our experiment ideas below to get you started.

      Science Fair Project Ideas:

      • How much wind energy can you store using the capacitor included in the kit? Measure the volts and amps using the multimeter.
      • Test how much power your turbine can produce while outside on a windy day. Is it enough to light up an LED?
      • Try an renewable energy project by connecting a solar cell in series or parallel circuit with the wind turbine. How much power can be produced?
