KIDWIND MINI WIND TURBINE WITH BLADE DESIGN
The MINI Wind Turbine with Blade Design allows students to perform experiments using a desktop fan to demonstrate the power of the wind. This is an affordable, rugged and easy-to-build turbine that will light a LED bulb or play a tune. The highly efficient blades will produce plenty of power in a slight breeze.

Using the MINI Wind Turbine with Blade Design, you can:
• Generate electricity
• Light LEDs
• Play a song
• Measure the effects of windspeed
• Measure turbine shading
• Compare blade designs
• Change blade pitch
• Investigate effect of changing number of blades
• Measure power output

Concepts
• Understanding clean energy
• Exploring energy transformations
• Understanding the relationship between energy and forces
• Developing and using physical models
• Understanding differences between energy and power
• Collecting data with advanced tools
• Analysing and interpreting data
• Using mathematics to explain and understand data
• Designing controlled experiments
• Optimising designs

Specifcations:
• Height: 30cm
• Maximum blade diameter: 20cm (Mini Turbine), 41cm (with blade design option)

This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
ACSPH044 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Circuit analysis and design involve calculation of the potential difference across, the current in, and the power supplied to, components in series, parallel and series/parallel circuits
ACSPH039 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Energy is conserved in the energy transfers and transformations that occur in an electrical circuit
ACSPH041 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Energy is required to separate positive and negative charge carriers; charge separation produces an electrical potential difference that can be used to drive current in circuits
ACSPH042 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Power is the rate at which energy is transformed by a circuit component; power enables quantitative analysis of energy transformations in the circuit
ACSPH043 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - Resistance for ohmic and non­ohmic components is defined as the ratio of potential difference across the component to the current in the component
ACSPH040 - Thermal nuclear and electrical physics - Electrical circuits - The energy available to charges moving in an electrical circuit is measured using electric potential difference, which is defined as the change in potential energy per unit charge between two defined points in the circuit
ACSSU219 - Physical Sciences - Alternative Energies - Energy from a variety of sources can be used to generate electricity
ACSSU097 - Physical Sciences - Electrical Circuits - Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources
ACSSU155 - Physical Sciences - Energy Forms - Energy appears in different forms, including movement (kinetic energy), heat and potential energy, and energy transformations and transfers cause change within systems
