Mini Wind Turbine Activity - 10 Pack


Design a turbine to harness the power of the wind and convert it into electricity. This STEM | STEAM | Maker project is truly green engineering. Start with your example build, testing through inquiry and experimentation. Then, iterate new designs and additions to transform the wind turbine into your own unique design. 

Create the blades utilizing recycling bin materials.  Adjust the angle, pitch and amount of blades to observe the electrical output of your wind turbine. We included plenty of extra components to try different designs.

Use a multimeter and alligator clip leads to measure the electrical output of your wind turbine.

This activity is a favorite for kitchen table innovation, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, universities, scout troops, camps, 4-H groups, and maker spaces. It's a wonderful activity for parents, grandparents or teachers to work on with their kids.
