Build wind-powered generators to energize electric vehicles and power up rechargeable batteries in this awesome kit! 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. The six different possible models to build include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, racecar, and tricycle. The 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 the the wind, to make the LED shine with brilliance, and to power up 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! A great introduction to wind as a viable alternative energy source, sure to open kids up to the possibilities of energy conservation.
