Thanks to its new design, it’s easier than ever to demonstrate this alternative windmill.
The Savonius Rotor is a low-rpm, high-torque, vertical-axis wind generator that harnesses wind – no matter what direction it’s blowing! Plus, this design features laser-cut wood pieces, precut slots, and alignment marks to ensure proper placement of all parts.
Great for curricula on electricity, alternative energy, or environmental science, the Savonius Rotor is perfect for both teacher demonstrations and student construction activities.
Rotor dimensions: 12-1/4" x 5-1/4". Requires soldering. Requires white glue, soldering iron and solder, Phillips screwdriver, scissors, hobby knife, transparent tape, and a fan or other wind source, sold separately.
