Description

Redesigned with a more efficient gearbox, motor, and blades, the WinDynamo works better than ever. With any standard box fan or a good wind, the blades will spin easily so you can demonstrate its power on the activity board.

Pitsco’s wind turbine shows students how alternative energy is created by harnessing the power produced by a fan or the wind. Experimenting with different blade pitches is a breeze with the front adjustment knob that moves all three blades simultaneously. The WinDynamo III features a stackable banana connector for adding a voltmeter.

Comes with an activity board for demonstrating how to convert electricity into light, sound, and mechanical energy. Some of the activities included with the WinDynamo III require the use of a multimeter, sold separately.

Looking for standards-based activities to accompany these materials? The Wind Energy Teacher’s Guide is available for print here, or you can download a digital copy for free here.
