Students engineer small-scale savonius and six-bladed wind turbines that generate electrical current and demonstrate the importance of renewable energy. When models are complete, a student-friendly computer interface displays real-time voltage and RPM data of up to four turbines, allowing students to compare the efficiency of these two real-world designs. Critical thinking skills improve as students analyze the advantages of these designs under various experimental conditions and even modify their designs to improve efficiency. Students then compare their alternators with three others to identify and fix design flaws. Kit includes software, USB connector, all pieces necessary to construct two SKY-Z Mini turbines and two savonius turbines, and digital access to build instructions and course curriculum.
