KidWind products help students investigate the science and technology of renewable energy sources like wind and solar energy. With our lab equipment, sensors, software, and investigations, students can explore engineering concepts and quantify energy production of small wind turbines and solar panels. A portion of all sales of KidWind products support the KidWind Challenges held throughout the US.
We recommend three set-ups for a classroom with 6–10 groups of 2–4 students. Each setup should have a box fan, a wind turbine tower and base, a Vernier interface, a Go Direct Energy Sensor, and either a Vernier Variable Load or a Vernier Resistor Board. Each group needs a Blade Pitch Protractor, a Wind Turbine Hub, and blade consumables.
