Windturbine great educational tool The Windturbine kit was worth the money and well designed. My 8 year old enjoyed putting it together with me, and learned about reading installation instructions using the drawings. That said there was some confusion, on my part, when purchased in that they indicated the kit would also make cars. The same parts are used so you get the Windturbine OR cars. Also there should be no expectation that you could actually charge a battery (to run a electric car) from the turbine (powered by a fan). It’s all the turbine can do to light a LED, however it does prove it works. The kit is a good tool to teach gear ratio’s and mechanical assembly, as well as how the wind can produce electricity. I’d strongly recommend it.

Interesting kit, very fast delivery Very interesting science kit, though a little hard to put together by an 8-year old. I thought that one of the 6 possible vehicles can be built together with one of the windmills, but it turned out that it’s either a vehicle or a windmill. So to charge the battery using windmill one needs to dismount the vehicle and put the windmill together.Extremely fast delivery though, despite Super Saver’s Shipping.

Creative kit -great for exploring how wind turbines work. I bought this for my 5.5 yr old son, my husband, and I. We all enjoy exploring alternative energy. We already had the Air + Water kit, so we were somewhat familiar with the connectors.Pros: -the tools included help a lot. Our son finds the pliers very helpful when putting the little red pieces in. (Not the intended purpose, but just as useful) -the turbine is of decent size (around 3 ft. tall) -it has multiple gear ratios to experiment with -the book includes tips, ideas, and some basics about wind, turbines, generators, motors, and such -once bored with the wind turbine, it can be disassembled and built into something new -it’s a sturdy kit -the connectors fit together quite well -good qualityCons: -the pictures are tiny -nearly impossible to get the turbine to charge a battery, as suggested. -some of the pieces like to pop loose when switching gears on the turbine -it takes a lot of wind to…
