These hands-on, critical thinking activities help students to develop a comprehensive understanding of the scientific, economic, environmental, technological, and societal aspects of wind energy. Students are challenged to design the optimum blades for a turbine and consider the best place to locate a turbine. The kit comes with a Teacher Guide, a class set of 30 Student Guides, and the materials necessary to conduct the activities, including two KidWind Geared Turbines.

Student and Teacher guides are also available in PDF format as a FREE download.
