STEM KIT ‘Horizon’: Wind Energy Science Kit
$ 211.25 excl. GST
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. Uniquely designed blade profile based on NASA aeronautics. Most realistic wind turbine experimentation available on the market. Complete wind energy curriculum covering vertical and horizontal axis turbines. Blade angle adjustable from 0° to 55°. (3 positions).
