Horizon Wind Energy Science Kit



With the Wind Energy Science Kit you can build a miniature power generation system that converts wind into electrical energy. Experiment with the pitch (angle setting) of turbine blades and find out the optimum number of blades for generating electricity. Nine blades, with three types of profiled blade based on NASA aeronautics and one type of poly-propylene sheet blade, provide the opportunity to find the perfect balance of wind resistance, weight and angle.



Features:
  • Uniquely designed blade profile based on NASA aeronautics
  • Most realistic wind turbine experimentation in a product possible on the market
  • Complete Wind Energy Curriculum covering vertical and horizontal axis turbines
  • Blade angle adjustable from 0-55 degrees (3 positions)

 

All Horizon STEM materials are aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and Energy Literacy Framework. Subject areas include Physics, Chemistry, and Earth Sciences for middle and high school grades.

Includes Experiment Outlines for:

  • How Many Blades Are Best - 1, 2, 3 ... More?
  • The Effect of Heat on Solar Panels
  • Using Three Different Curved Blade Shapes
  • Using Blades You Make Yourself
  • Turbine Efficiencies
  • Measuring RPM
  • Tuning For Maximum Power
  • How Blade Angle or Pitch Affects Output Power

Includes Full STEM Activity Materials for:

  • Changing the number of blades
  • The Effect of Heat on Solar Panels
  • Changing the angle of blades
  • Using different-shaped blades
  • Measuring revolutions per minute
  • Determining minimum amount of wind

 

 

  • Mini wind turbine (wind power generator)
  • Kit for learning about wind power energy
  • Blade pitch, blade profile and number of blades can be evaluated
  • Vane aligns the turbine automatically to the direction of the wind
  • Special 3 phase alternator for higher output power
  • LED for output power demonstration
  • Complete educational curriculum on wind energy

 

⚠WARNING:

To avoid the risk of property damage, serious injury or death: This kit should only be used by persons 14 years old and up, and only under the supervision of adults who have familiarized themselves with the safety measures described in the kit. Keep small children and animals away, as it contains small parts that could be swallowed. Read the instructions before use and have them ready for reference.
