Bring wind power into your classroom
with the classroom wind turbine kit. A great teaching tool
used to demonstrate the basic principles of how electricity
can be generated from the wind. The hands-on wind charger kit
is fun and easy to use either in the classroom, using a desk
fan, or outdoors. The desk mounted turbine rotates to face
into the wind and demonstrates the production of electricity
through the attachment of the motor, LED or buzzer units
supplied. Suitable for use in both primary and secondary
schools, the wind turbine kit can be assembled in minutes
straight out of the box and comes with its own storage case.
A fantastic interactive teaching aid to
build on the importance of renewable energy. Ideal for science
experiments, the government's 'Sustainable Schools'
initiative, EcoSchools awards and Environmental studies.
The classroom wind power demonstration
kit also comes complete with pupil experimental work sheets.
The worksheets have been designed for teachers to use with
their pupils to investigate how the turbine works, and then to
share and discuss their findings.
- Number of blades: 2,3 or 6 -
The voltage can be measured using the dual-purpose
ammeter/voltmeter to investigate the effects of adding
extra turbine blades.
- Change the blade angle - The
blade angles can also be changed to investigate what
effect this may have on the system.
- What can the turbine do? - The
LED, buzzer and motor can be connected to demonstrate the
polarity of the current generated by the wind turbine.
- Change gears - With 5 easy to
change gearing options you can investigate speed and
voltage depending on the gear selected.
- Indoors/outdoors - Suitable to
set up experiments either indoors, using a desk fan, or
outdoors using real wind power.
