Description



Bring wind power into your classroom with the classroom wind turbine kit. A ideal teaching tool used to demonstrate the basic principles of how electricity can be generated from the wind. The hands-on wind charger kit is fun and easy to use either in the classroom, using a desk fan, or outdoors. The desk mounted turbine rotates to face into the wind and demonstrates the production of electricity through the attachment of the motor, LED or buzzer units supplied. Suitable for use in both primary and secondary schools, the wind turbine kit can be assembled in minutes straight out of the box and comes with its own storage case.

A fantastic interactive teaching aid to build on the importance of renewable energy. Ideal for science experiments, the government's 'Sustainable Schools' initiative, EcoSchools awards and Environmental studies. The classroom wind power demonstration kit also comes complete with pupil experimental work sheets. The worksheets have been designed for teachers to use with their pupils to investigate how the turbine works, and then to share and discuss their findings.
