KidWind SimpleGen AC Generator

The simpleGEN is an easy-to-build AC generator that allows students to explore the basics of electrical generator design. With the simpleGEN you can demonstrate Faraday’s law, light LEDs, and perform experiments that explore how coils, magnets and rotation affect electrical generation. With some quick modifications, you will also be able to convert your generator to a simple motor and explore additional variables.

Take your experiments to the next level by converting your simpleGEN to a wind turbine with the simpleGEN Wind Upgrade Pack. Make and test wind turbine blades with your generator.

You Can:

  • Build your own generator
  • Generate electricity
  • AC power output
  • Light LEDs
  • Compare different designs (coils, magnets, spinning)
  • Measure voltage output


  • Understanding clean energy
  • Exploring energy transformations
  • Understanding relationship between energy and forces
  • Developing and using physical models
  • Collecting data with advanced tools
  • Analyzing and interpreting data
  • Using mathematics to explain and understand data
  • Designing controlled experiments
  • Optimizing designs
Frequently Asked Questions
  • How much power can you make?

    Using a drill to spin the driveshaft and over 100-150 turns of wire, you will be able to light an LED and produce close to 2V at 20-50mA.

  • Does this kit come with a tower?

    No. We recommend attaching it to a table with a clamp.

  • Is this kit pretty simple?

    Yes! We wanted to make a very simple, rugged generator that would demonstrate the basics.
