Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)

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). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, race car, or tricycle.

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!

Requires 1 rechargable AA battery (not included.)
