Wind / water mini generator turbine
Hand-held miniature turbine that generates electricity and lights a small red LED light when you blow the blades or hold it under water (it's perfectly fine with getting wet!)
How might I use these?
These are great for teaching children about the possibilities of generating electrical energy from wind and water. With younger children they can experiment with trying different ways to turn the blades and get a feel for how much force is needed to light the light. They build an association between wind / water power and the possibility to harness sustainable energy sources to generate electricity. For older children these can be used for more quantifiable experiments to work out what flow rate, wind speed etc are needed to light the LED. Does the height water falls from affect the amount of energy released? Can they build a dam that will release water with enough energy to light the light? How fast does it have to move through air to light the light? The possibilities are endless!
