My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

KidWind Basic Turbine Building Parts

The Basic Turbine Building Parts kit includes the KidWind Hub, a wind turbine generator, and 25 dowels, all in one package.

These are the bare-bones components to build your own experimental wind turbine. This package is great for students who don't want a ready-made wind turbine tower and base, and is great for educators who want an affordable way for each of their students (or student groups) to do hands-on experiments with wind power.

The Classroom Pack includes ten Basic Turbine Parts kits and a free blade pitch protractor!

Housing dimensions Approximately 8 in. x 12 in. x 1 in.
Expected temperature change 0-20° F

You Can:

  • Build a DIY wind turbine. The hub attaches to the generator. Students build blades, attach them to dowels, and insert the dowels into the hub for experimentation. The DC generator produces electricity when it spins.
