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.

Wind Power
  • 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.

    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.

    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!

    Well worth the money!

    My 11 year old son received this for his birthday. As soon as he received it he opened the box and assembled it. He has had it for a week and I often find him carrying it around and tinkering with it.

    This was a gift, so I haven't been able to study it in detail, but it's a great exercise in learning how to harness the energy of nature.

    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.
