DIY a Wind Turbine Kit & | School Project for kids in Primary, middle, and high school.
This set is ideal for developing a science fair experiment or school project and for exploring just for fun! You’ll get to build your own model wind turbine, investigate how it works, and see it create and store power.
Here are just some of what you can do with this wind turbine kit: harness energy to make a colored light glow or motor spin; work with generators & electrical circuits; plus find out how a super-capacitor stores wind energy like a battery. Then design and test your own wind turbine blades using the materials included in the kit.
Note: Product designed by Pakistan Science Club (Pakistan Science Club inspires a lifelong interest in science, math, and technology by engaging diverse communities through interactive and innovative programs)
