The product is supplied in kit form including all hoses and attachments when demonstrating electricity being produced using water. In addition to the base unit, solar panel, water turbine’ and wind turbine’ blades, the kit comes with four dials, a meter, a siren, flashing lights, and moving cogs to demonstrate possible effects of power generation. The product variations can be assembled in well under one minute and is easy to use and demonstrate.
You can gain practical experience of wind and solar energy whilst using the power generated into 12V batteries to operate low energy lamps, pumps, etc. or through inverters which convert the power to 240V a.c., for computers and other low energy mains appliances.
Thames & Kosmos Wind Power RenewableEnergy Science Kit
Full-colour, 32-page experiment manual. Illustrated instructions and scientific information. Build a working wind turbine. Harness mechanical energy to lift weights. Generate electricity to light an LED and charge a battery. Learn the physics of wind turbines. Discover how wind occurs and why it is such a promising energy source. Ages 8 and up.
The RenewableEnergyKit has been designed for demonstration either outdoors or in the classroom. In the classroom the teacher can use a fan or light source to replicate the wind and/or sun. In addition to demonstrating the generation of electricity using renewable sources, teachers can use the product to discuss the environmental issues associated with these forms of energy production. Size of base unit: W175 x D260 x H90mm. Fully assembled with wind turbine’ blade: H580mm.
