Wind Power - Experiment Manual Sample Pages (PDF)

No matter where you stand on the global warming debate, you have to acknowledge that fossil fuels are not a renewable resource. It may be that the only effect you will ever experience is increasing fuel costs, but it is a near certainty that succeeding generations will have to find alternative resources if they want to maintain their current lifestyle. (Whether that should be their goal is another debate entirely!)

Whether your child wants to be on the cutting edge in terms of a career or is merely fascinated by this natural, inexhaustible, and environmentally-friendly alternative, Wind Power provides a wonderful overview. He begins by assembling a wind turbine complete with electric generator, adjustable rotors, and wind speed indicator. Then he can use the wind turbine to generate mechanical power to lift a heavy weight, or generate electricity to light up an LED or to charge a rechargeable battery. He will learn physics as it applies to wind power technology and why wind will never run out.

The full color, 32-page experiment manual offers illustrated instructions and scientific information. This kit requires an AA battery (available separately). Ages 8 and up.
