Product Description:

Here in the Midwest, we see windmill "farms" popping up all over the place, trying to take advantage of the wind over our flat topography. And as wind is more and more often promoted as a green source of energy, it is worth taking a look into to see the benefits and challenges presented by harnessing the power of the wind. This excellent kit by Thames & Kosmos helps you do just that with a mix of their sturdy plastic physics parts and a full-color, 32-page experiment guide with 10 activities. Besides presenting the experiments, the guide also provides information on air currents, windmill designs of today and yesterday, how wind can perform work, the power formula for wind, apparent wind, turbulence, lift and resistance. In the experiments, you will build a wind "power plant," then use it to try different wing angles, calculate the rotation speed and speed ratio, and use the windmill to power a light, recharge a battery and use as a fan. Build a turbine and also four additional electric models: a three-wheeler, car, helicopter, & truck. Who knows? If you live in a location with a lot of wind, you might just go on to build your own windmill generator for your home! 75 pcs Jess
