Build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles and charge your rechargeable batteries! The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, racecar, and tricycle.
This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experimenting. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible. Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!
This kit includes a 40-page color instruction book with illustrated step-by-step instructions for assembling two windmills and six model vehicles, and conducting various experiments. The 133 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in all Thames & Kosmos Construction Series kits, Physics Series kits, Wind Power, and Hydropower kits.

we purchased this product as a 6th grade science project for our 12 year old twins....they could hardly wait to open the box and put it together....the instructions were great and the boys assembled it themselves....its been a fun toy!!!!!!
Information about Wind Power 2.0
We ordered this toy for science experiment and it assembled well but we had a hard time charging the AA. We charged it a long time in front of fan and we tried two different kind of batteries. It wouldn't charge and we didn't find any guidelines for how to fix it. [We fixed it.]
If you can't fix it yourself, catch wind of this... We'll breeze by to help. Please visit the Returns & Exchanges center for assistance!
