Wind Energy Science Kit

In Stock
Unit:  Ea

Explore wind energy with a realistic wind turbine in a miniature size!

What type of wind turbine blade is the most efficient at generating energy? What is the optimal number of blades? Answer these questions and more through a series of 7 experiments in this wind energy kit. Students test 3 types of turbine blades (9 total) based on NASA aerodynamics to see how the curve, weight, and angle of each affects results. Snap up to 6 blades onto the rotor to test how varying the number affects energy generation. Use indoors with a fan or outdoors on a windy day. Included online curriculum and teacher's guide features 200 hours of lesson plans and activities. All lessons align with Next Generation Science Standards. Ideal for up to 3 students. Recommended for Upper Elementary and up.
