Creating power and energy from thin air? You bet! This affordable wind turbine demonstrates how energy can be generated by wind. Easy to assemble, this little-turbine-that-could produces enough electricity to power LED bulbs, a small power output board, and other devices such as mini water pumps and buzzers. Turbine can be easily adapted for possible inquiry activities challenging students to make different types of blades in the classroom or figure out how to adapt the turbine to yaw (or rotate) to face the wind. Kit includes the full turbine, a power output board with lights and sound generator, a pair of clip wires, and instructions with easy-to-follow assembly directions, experiments, and tips and hints.
