Harness the power of the wind and explore the innovation behind alternative energy with the TeacherGeek Mini Wind Turbine activity. Capture energy from the wind to convert into electricity, as students cycle through the engineering process to invent unique and more efficient designs. Recycling bin, 3-D printed or found materials are used to create the blades, attached to the mount with toothpicks and easily adjustable for challenges and labs. Learn how blade shape, angle or pitch impacts the turbine’s electrical output (measure with a digital multimeter and alligator clip leads.) A favorite, environmentally-conscious activity for schools, scout troops, summer camps, 4-H groups or science fairs. Build once, tinker forever.
