Wind and solar energy experiment kits and parts for KidWind projects, challenges, and competitions
Use this kit to Evaluate different blade designs, gear ratios, generators, and devices to measure electrical and weightlifting power, whilst discovering advanced aspects of wind turbine technology. Containing everything you need to unleash the advanced concepts of wind turbine technology! Conduct the same investigations as the Basic Wind Experiment Kit but with the ability to generate more power at higher voltages ( 0.5 V-20 V). This kit is ideal for years 8 through 12 as well as college students. It will provide young scientists with the opportunity to investigate gearboxes, Aerofoils and with the GenPack add-on; generator construction. They can also design and construct their own blades to generate electricity, lift weights, and pump water. Simply add your own wind source, basic tools, and imagination! This kit is also available in the Kidwind Advanced Experiment Kit, Classroom Pack.£194.00 ex VAT | £232.80 Inc VAT Add to basket
Educate young scientists to generate electricity, lift weights and test a variety of blade designs with this popular kit. This popular kit allows young scientists to test a variety of blade designs, generate electricity, and lift weights using nothing but wind energy. The Basic Wind Experiment Kit supplies you with everything you need to begin understanding wind power. Explore wind energy affordably and easily, just add the wind, basic tools, and your imagination. Great for grades 4-12 and groups, as well as individual science fair projects. This kit is also available in the Kidwind Basic Experiment Kit, Classroom Pack.£155.00 ex VAT | £186.00 Inc VAT Add to basket
The simpleGEN is an easy-to-build AC generator that allows students to explore the basics of electrical generator design. Your students can now investigate the fundamentals of electrical generator design with an easy to build AC generator. The KidWind SimpleGEN enables you to demonstrate Faraday's law, light LEDs, and perform experiments that explore how coils, magnets, and rotation affect electrical generation. Convert your generator into a simple motor just by making a few quick alterations whilst also allowing for greater exploration. Further still, you can convert your simpleGEN into a wind turbine nacelle. The simpleGEN classroom pack has enough materials to build 10 generators and includes three digital multimeters. This Kit is also available in the KidWind simpleGEN Classroom Pack.
This smooth running generator delivers high power output at relatively low revs and is the primary generator for wind turbine experiments. It is also the standard generator used in the KidWind Challenge competition events.£9.00 ex VAT | £10.80 Inc VAT Add to basket
Explore solar energy with this innovative science kit designed to help students investigate energy transformations. Discover how the angle of photovoltaic panels relative to the sun affects power output. Experiment with basic circuits and learn about important factors in photovoltaic systems.£103.00 ex VAT | £123.60 Inc VAT Add to basket
The Vernier Energy Sensor offers an easy way to quantify voltage, current, power, and energy output of small wind turbines and solar panels such as those used in our KidWind Experiment Kits. Simply connect a source such as a small wind turbine or solar panel to one side and a load such as the Variable Load or a resistor on the Vernier Resistor Board to the other side. The Energy Sensor measures the current and voltage of the system. Data-collection and analysis software, such as Logger Pro or LabQuest App can then calculate the power and energy output.£114.00 ex VAT | £136.80 Inc VAT Add to basket
The Go Direct Energy Sensor quantifies the voltage, current, power, and energy output of small wind turbines and solar panels, such as those used in our KidWind Experiment Kits. It connects wirelessly via Bluetooth® or wired via USB to your device.£121.00 ex VAT | £145.20 Inc VAT Add to basket
