Thames & Kosmos Wind Power 4 Science Kit
Explore the history and modern day use of wind to generate power with this science kit - build a 3ft wind turbine to generate electricity, from 8 years
Thames and Kosmos Wind Power 4.0 is a renewable energy childrens science kit with models to construct so children can explore wind as a renewable energy.
With this kit, you can assemble a realistic wind turbine complete with electric generator and adjustable rotor blades that are designed with complex aerodynamic curves to look and work like modern-day wind turbine blades. Then, conduct experiments to optimise the turbine’s performance by adjusting the angle of the blades and discover how to use the wind turbine to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery. Convert the generator into an electric motor and assemble a small electric car to demonstrate a tangible application for the stored electricity.
The full-color, 32-page manual offers illustrated instructions and scientific information that explores the different types of wind turbines and windmills, the history of this technology, and how wind energy can be used to power homes and electric cars.
During these experiments, children will learn the physics of force and motion and how it applies to wind power technology. On top of the educational value, this fantastically-fun set will make science a sensation for young learners.
