The Wind Pump harnesses the energy created from wind to pump water. The wind-driven turbine powers a geared transmission that operates a hydraulic pump. This will move water from one level up to another. You will apply many scientific concepts such as calculating work, fluid mechanics, simple machines and aerodynamics. A stand is necessary. Try making one of your own. The blade materials is yours to procure - try recycling bin products like old cardboard or wood.
