Description

Wind energy has the potential to supply all the electricity needed in the United States. Introduce students to this renewable energy with the Wind Gen Kit.

With this kit, students quickly build a windmill that catches a breeze from a fan and converts it into energy. Students see this energy when it lights a bulb attached to the motor. Or, they can wire several mills together to power larger devices such as a radio or a small motor.

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.
