Basic Wind Turbine Kit

Equipment Type(s):
pre-built renewable energy kits
Subject area(s):
Building wind turbines
Designing turbine blades
Measuring efficiency of different turbine designs

Developed by KidWind, this kit allows students to build simple wind turbines by designing their blades, including determining the blade quantity and tilt angle. By limiting the number of experimental variables and eliminating the gearbox, this kit simplifies the design process.
