STEM KIT ‘Horizon’: Renewable Energy Science Kit [Junior]

$ 603.00 excl. GST

This kit demonstrates the workings of a clean energy technology system on a miniature scale. Power an electrical circuit by solar panel or a wind turbine with profiled blades based on NASA aeronautics. Generate hydrogen through water electrolysis and convert it into electricity using a PEM fuel cell. Whichever combination of technologies you want to explore, this science kit is a comprehensive introduction to the principles behind renewable micro-grids. Small-scale wind turbine, solar cell, fuel cell, electrolyzer and more. Enough hardware, software and curriculum content for group work – up to 4 or 5 students.
Includes Full STEM Activity Materials for:
Reversible electrolysis reactions, Reaction rates, Increasing energy efficiency and car performance, Renewable energy, Conservation of energy and energy transfer, Measuring the effects of solar cell angle on electrical output, Measuring the effects of shading on electrical output, Changing number of blades, Changing angle of blades, Using different-shaped blades, Rotational dynamics.
