Can I upgrade from a KidWind Basic Wind Turbine Kit to the advanced kit?

Yes, if you purchased your basic kit after January of 2015, you simply need the KidWind Basic to Advanced Experiment Kit Upgrade, order code KW-BUPA, $40.

The difference between the 2015 version of the KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Kit, order code KW-BWX, $119 and the KidWind Advanced Wind Experiment Kit, order code KW-AWX, $149 is that the advanced kit includes the following additional parts:
· High Torque Generator with Wires (1)
· Motor Mount Pack (1)
· 250 ml Graduated Cylinder (1)
· Small Water Pump (1)
· 12″ x 1/4″ Clear Tubing (1)
· 16-tooth gear (1)
· 64-tooth gear (1)
These parts are available as the KidWind Basic to Advanced Experiment Kit Upgrade, order code KW-BUPA, $40. If you wish to upgrade your KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Kit (Classroom Pack), order code KW-BWXC, $299, you should purchase 2 or 3 of the upgrade kits for each KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Classroom Pack you already own.

If you have an older (before January 2015) KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Kit, you will not have the correct nacelle, the 8-tooth pinion gear, or the 32-tooth gear. You will need all of the following:
KidWind Basic to Advanced Experiment Kit Upgrade, order code KW-BUPA, $40
KidWind Nacelle, order code KW-NAC, $18
KidWind Gear Set, order code KW-GEAR, $9

In addition, the Advanced Wind Experiment Kit Nacelle, order code KW-AWXN, $69 remains available.
