Build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles and charge your rechargeable batteries. The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build with our kit. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, racecar, and tricycle.


This kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experimenting. You can adjust the angle and number of wind turbine blades to make best use of wind, to make the LED light up brightly, and to charge the rechargeable battery as fast as possible. Explore this amazing, free source of renewable energy and store the electricity you generate for use in practical applications.


This kit includes a 40-page color instruction book with illustrated step-by-step instructions for assembling two windmills and six model vehicles, and conducting various experiments. The 133 building pieces included in this set are compatible with those in our Air + Water Power, Remote Control Machines, and Solar Power kits.


Ages 8 and up.

Wind doesn't blow the blades

By Grandma

from Aurora, IL

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Educational

Cons

  • Doesn't Work

Best Uses

    bought for my Grandson 10 yrs old. built windmill and have tried different blades and can't get wind or a fan to turn the blades. The blades turn freely by hand but can't get the wind to turn the blades. Even tried a large fan on high. Have tried both sets of blades and all three different gears. If anyone has any suggestions we're all ears. My Grandson is very excited but he and his Dad can't get it to work.

    •  Learn what percentage of your genome is affiliated with specific regions of the world.
    •  Find out if you have Neanderthal or Denisovan ancestry.
    •  Have the opportunity to share your story and connect with other Genographic Project participants, helping us fill in the gaps in the human story.

    What's included in the Geno 2.0 DNA Test kit:

    The Geno 2.0 kit contains everything you need to begin the journey into your past, including painless cheek swabs and instructions for submitting your DNA samples (return postage required). Plus, we’ve designed the Geno 2.0 kit box to serve as a beautiful keepsake to store your results after you access them online.

    How your participation helps the Genographic Project:

    The Genographic Project is an ambitious attempt to help answer fundamental questions about where humankind originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Using the latest genetic and computational technologies to analyze historical patterns in DNA from participants around the world, our team of world-renowned scientists led by Dr. Spencer Wells, seeks to reveal our migratory history and to better understand the connections and differences that make up humankind.

These remarkable sovereigns, rulers and conquerors could—by a single act, decree or whispered aside—better the lives of their people or condemn them to an existence plagued by war and deprivation. What made each one so special? How did they come to power? And once they assumed the mantle of leadership—whether by birth, by fiat or by deadly design—what did it feel like to rule?

    It's looking increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EVs for short) will be the cars of the future. More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEVs)—which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells—are starting to become practical. Many major auto manufacturers have BEVs in development, and a few already have BEVs on the road today. The challenge in making BEVs a viable transportation solution is the battery. Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances, and more efficient than gasoline engines. Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made.
