CLASSROOM STEM PLUS PLAYOFF 4 PACK WIND TURBINE COMPETITION
Students Learn What Hinders Alternator Efficiency
- 2 SKY-Z Mini Horizontal Wind Turbines
- 2 Savonius Vertical Wind Turbines
- Free Building Your Student’s Confidence: Proven Strategies, Easy & Quick Classroom Activities eBook
Add competition with the PicoTurbine STEM Program while learning about wind energy. This takes learning to a whole new level! You have 4 alternating power sources with each STEM Turbine interface so you can compare them in real time. Using a computer, your students can see real time data comparison of RPM’s plus power output that is generated by their alternators.
The Sky-Z Savonius wind turbine kit works seamlessly with the interface and software while assisting your students to judge their designs. This is one of the most important steps of the scientific method, to get feedback on a design and then modify the design when necessary. Students can also determine which turbine (vertical or horizontal) is most efficient. That is what real engineering scientists do!
- 2 SKY-Z Mini & 2 Savonius Turbines
- 4x AC Turbines
- STEM Lab: STEM+ Playoff Circuit Board
- USB Cable
- User Manual
Classroom Activity – An Ideal Additon To The Classroom
- Students can change the structure of the blades and compete against each other. The data analysis show which turbine has the greatest efficiency.
- Create their own blades made from various materials
- Modify the design of the blades
It is important for students to know that if their design did not come out the winner, they are still winners, not failures. There is no failure in life, just feedback! Now they can modify their design or change the materials. Tell your students to ask themselves this question, “What did I learn from this experience and what can I do differently next time?” This is truly learning at its best.
