Science Experiment Kit - Wind Power 2.0
Build wind-powered generators to mobilize 8 different models and machines!
With the Wind Power 2.0 Experiment Kit, build generators powered by wind to energize your electric vehicles and charge your rechargeable battery!
The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges a rechargeable AA battery. You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build! The eight 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 the 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. Includes a 40-page color instruction book with illustrated step-by-step instructions for assembling the two windmills and six model vehicles, along with 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. One (1) rechargeable AA battery required (not included). For ages 8 and older.
