Additional Information

Would you or your child like to learn first hand about renewable energy sources like windmills and wind turbines?

Here's a ready-to-build kit, perfect for ages 10 and up. Assembling this kit will teach the principles of wind power. When it's completed, you will have a fully functioning wind turbine that you put together yourself! This kit should take about an hour to build. Younger children may require some adult supervision.

When assembled, the wind turbine stands about 8 inches tall. It produces approximately 1.7V-2.5V which is enough power to light up the included bicolor LED.

The kit includes everything you need to assemble the wind turbine:
aluminum wire
prewound coils of enamel coated copper wire
ceramic magnets
bicolor LED
phillips head screws
wooden dowel
pre-cut wood
pre-cut cardboard
retaining clips
pre-cut double-sided tape
sandpaper
template sheet for the cardboard
instruction manual

PicoTurbine kits have been used by thousands of students, homeschoolers and hobbyists to learn all about wind power and renewable energy sources. Some past users include major universities such as Caltech, Duke, Texas A&M and MIT, along with the NREL - the National Renewable Energy Laboratory who have used the PicoTurbine kits for their summer youth programs.

This kit is ideal for science fairs, science projects, science class, summer camp, Boy Scout troops, Girl Scout troops, or anyone that wants to have fun learning about wind power.

Included in the kit is a instructor's guide that provides technical notes as well as other ideas for teachers including experiments. Should you have any trouble with the assembly or operation, a comprehensive trouble-shooting guide is also provided.
