Build a small wind turbine

Learn to build an electricity generating wind turbine from simple materials, using a range of hand tools and techniques. You will carve a wooden blade, turn a copper coil, manipulate powerful magnets and fabricate a metal mounting together as a team. Once all the parts are brought together the complete turbine is tested on a short tower and you will see your hard work rewarded as the batteries fully charge. Get a fantastic sense of achievement as you see the project develop from a pile of raw materials through to a fully working system, and get a greater understanding of the underlying scientific principles involved.
