KidWind Blade Design Bulk Consumables Pack

This product contains the major consumable materials used for wind turbine blade design experiments. This pack features two blade-making materials: balsa wood and corrugated plastic sheets. Both materials are light and rigid, but have different properties that allow for interesting experiments. An optimal, pre-molded blade set is also included. Dowels are included for attaching your blades to the hub.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How do I attach my blades to the dowels?

    We recommend hot glue (glue gun). Other types of glue or duct tape may also work.

  • What is the best way to cut balsa wood?

    The balsa tends to split and break if you use scissors. Hobby knives work well. Be very careful using a hobby knife because they are sharp and it's easy to cut yourself. We recommend adult supervision.
