Wind Power V3
Build a wind turbine to generate electricity.
Build a large, realistic wind turbine 90 cm tall to harness power out of thin air. Wind is one of the most promising sources of clean, renewable energy available today. Wind energy has been used for centuries to pump water and crush grain in windmills, and is increasingly being used to generate electricity to power our modern world.
Assemble a wind turbine complete with electric generator and adjustable rotor blades. The blades are designed with complex aerodynamic curves to look and work like modern-day wind turbine blades.
Conduct experiments with your wind turbine, including experiments to optimize its performance by adjusting the angle of the blades and the placement of the turbine. Use the wind turbine to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery (not included). Convert the wind turbine into an electric fan by using the electric generator as a motor. Build four additional models with the parts included: an electric three-wheeler, electric car, electric helicopter, and electric truck.
Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing an endless source of energy. Read about different types of wind turbines and windmills, the history of this technology, and how wind energy can be used to power homes and electric cars.
