KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Kit

The Basic Wind Experiment Kit is a great introduction to wind energy science and engineering concepts. This is a robust, experimentally rich turbine kit that is appropriate for middle and high school students.

Explore wind energy affordably and easily. This kit, one of our most popular, allows young scientists to test a variety of blade designs, generate electricity (0.5 3 V range), and lift weights. The Basic Wind Experiment Kit has all the materials you need to get started understanding wind power. Great for classrooms, as well as individual science fair projects.

Experimentally Rich

  • Test electricity production and weightlifting
  • Explore torque and energy transfers
  • Measure electrical and mechanical power
  • Experiment with wind turbine blade design

Renewable
Plastic parts made from recycled plastic

Height 24 in.
Maximum blade diameter 36 in. (with provided materials)
Maximum number of blades 12
