Renewable Energy Science Kit
Build a working wind turbine to harness power out of thin air with this amazing science kit.
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 now increasingly being used to generate electricity to power our modern world.
Assemble a wind turbine complete with electric generator, adjustable rotors, and wind speed indicator
Conduct 20+ science experiments with your wind turbine... have fun experimenting with different numbers of rotor blades, different blade angles and profiles, different wind speeds, different gear ratios, and more!
Use the wind turbine to generate mechanical power to lift a heavy weight
Generate electricity to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery
Learn the physics of force and motion as it applies to wind power technology
Learn how to measure and calculate the different forces acting on the rotor blades by breaking them down into vectors
Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing us with an endless source of energy
Understand how different types of wind turbines and windmills work
The full-color, 32-page experiment manual offers illustrated instructions and scientific information.
As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 8 years of age.
Review of Wind Power

My 11-year-old nephew loves this! He put it together quickly using the very clear instructions and has really enjoyed doing the different activities with it. Another great "brain toy" for a boy with a big brain!

I really cannot give you an assessment of the toy. I bought it as a birthday present for my grandson. However, I must tell you that you were terrific in keeping me advised as to the delivery date. As promised, the gift came last Thursday and you even sent me an email advising me that the gift was left at the front door.
Keep up the great work. I will continue to buy from Fat Brains.
