Explore engineering and mechanics principles with hands-on construction of two miniature wind turbines. One generates direct current via a 6V motor while the other uses copper coils and magnets to generate alternating current through magnetic induction. Students perform wind energy experiments, using critical thinking skills to identify key differences between alternating and direct electrical current. Alligator clips connect each turbine to an LED light or a buzzer to demonstrate how electricity from wind is transformed into light or sound, and students use a multimeter to measure power output! Kit includes 1 Savonious V3 AC Wind Turbine and 1 Savonious DC Wind Turbine, and digital access to build instructions and course material. Full contents list below.
