Build a working wind turbine to harness power out of thin air. Wind is one of the most promising sources of clean, renewable energy available today. Wind energy has been used for centuries to pump water and crush grain in windmills, and is now increasingly being used to generate electricity to power our modern world.

Assemble a wind turbine complete with electric generator, adjustable rotors, and wind speed indicator. Conduct more than 20 experiments with your wind turbine, including experiments with different numbers of rotor blades, different blade angles and profiles, different wind speeds, different gear ratios, and so on. Use the wind turbine to generate mechanical power to lift a heavy weight or generate electricity to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery.

During the experiments, you will learn the physics of force and motion as it applies to wind power technology. Learn how to measure and calculate the different forces acting on the rotor blades by breaking them down into vectors. Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing us with an endless source of energy. Read about different types of wind turbines and windmills.

The full-color, 32-page experiment manual offers illustrated instructions and scientific information.


Thames & Kosmos Wind Power Kit

Did you know that the warmth of sunshine helps to create wind? Well, just like solar power, wind power is also a renewable, sustainable source of energy. With the Thames & Kosmos Wind Power Kit, you can build a working wind turbine to harness power from moving air, then use it with an electric generator, adjustable rotors, and a wind-speed indicator to conduct more than 20 experiments. This kit comes with an informative 32-page guidebook that shows you how this turbine can generate power to lift a weight, light up an LED, and charge a rechargeable battery. Discover how vectors are used to measure and calculate the forces acting on the rotor blades, and much more.
