Discover advanced concepts of wind turbine technology!
- Create blades for wind turbines
- Design applications for wind power
- Grades 7 - 12
Young scientists can explore gearboxes and airfoils. They can also construct blades to generate electricity, lift weights, and pump water. This kit is perfect for grades 7-12 and is all inclusive. You will need your own wind source, basic tools, and imagination!
The classroom pack option includes three turbines, extra hubs, and blade consumables for approximately 24 students.
