Fun with Science Friday - Build Your Own Wind Turbine! (on a small scale)

Whether you are looking to teach about alternative energy sources, searching for a gift for a science-loving kid (recommended for ages 8+), or you just like the idea of building your own wind turbine (there was no upper limit in the age group, after all) - this looks like a lot of fun!

Product description from the Thames & Kosmos website:

"Build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles and charge your rechargeable batteries! The wind spins the turbine, which turns an electric generator, which in turn charges your rechargeable AA batteries (not included). You can then use those wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, racecar, and tricycle."

Wind Power 2.0 kits are available to purchase online (with FREE shipping) through To locate a local place to pick up one of these great science kits click here. And here is a link for more great alternative energy and environmental science kits (you know, in case you prefer solar or hydropower to wind).
