Advanced Wind Energy Kit WKW-K1
Explore wind energy affordably and easily, for grades 7-12 and college. This kit allows young scientists to test a variety of blade designs, generate electricity (0.5 V–20 V range), and lift weights. This kit has all the materials you need to get started understanding wind power, as well as, discover advanced concepts of wind turbine technology, including gearboxes and generator construction (with the GenPack add-on, recommended for college and high school). Students can use the blades they design to generate electricity, lift weights, and pump water. All you need to add is a wind source, basic tools, and imagination!
Great for classrooms, as well as individual science fair projects.
5-year limited warranty (excludes consumables).
