Description

  • Make and test turbine blades
  • Store easily for future classes

The basic turbine is a great start for teaching students about wind energy. Tested and approved by thousands of teachers worldwide, this is one of the most affordable and robust wind turbine kits on the market. Students can design turbine blades for it and test power output with a multimeter, LED lamps, or an ultra capacitor (each sold separately). This is where it all began for KidWind, developing a simple, robust, yet highly experimental classroom turbine. The KidWind Basic Turbine Kit has been built by teachers in hundreds of workshops since 2004.
