Wind Power 2.0
|Electricity Generating Turbines
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
