Harness Wind Power with Electricity Generating Turbines
Build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles and charge your rechargeable batteries. When wind spins the turbine, an electric generator turns, 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, including 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. Simply 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, plus 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.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
