Learn about renewable resources while you build a wind-powered generator to energize your electric vehicle and charge your rechargeable batteries!

The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included).

This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experiments. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of the wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible.

A great gift for young scientists who are ready for a hands-on way of learning about wind energy!

Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications!
