Savonius Educational DC Wind Turbine
Savonius Educational DC Wind Turbine
Our Price: $19.99

Learn about vertical wind turbines! The savonius blades spin the DC motor which generates power. This kit also includes electronic components to test the output of the wind harnessed.

Construct this STEM kit from scratch and engineer it to make it power an led, piezo buzzer or just showcase the power on a standard multimeter! This turbine is made in the USA out of recycled plastics so it not only creates alternative energy but is also made of sustainable components locally!

Each kit contains all the parts needed to build a fully functioning Savonius Wind Turbine!

    Mendocino Solar Spinning Motor
    Mendocino Solar Spinning Motor
    Our Price: $49.99

    A Mendocino Motor is a floating, solar powered motor that hovers by use of magnets. It receives power from the solar panels (4 in all) that are on each face of the rotor. The rotor floats on a base which also has magnets that repulse the magnets built into the ends of the rotor that allow it to 'float' much like the manually powered Magnetic Spinner. A large, powerful magnet is set in the center of the base.

    When light strikes one of the panels it creates electrical current, which in turn creates a magnetic field. This field interacts with the magnetic field of the base's central magnet and causes the rotor to spin. The process repeats with each panel and the rotor can build up quite a level of speed.

    SKY-Z Hydro Turbine DC
    SKY-Z Hydro Turbine DC
    Our Price: $50.00


    The Sky-Z Hydro is the newest member of our Turbine family. With powerful curriculum components that focus on Energy and 3D Printing our kits stand alone in the Education and Maker industries. Expanding on our hugely popular Sky-Z Turbine, the Sky-Z Hydro uses the best elements of our existing Limitless platform in terms of variables, coupled with advanced hydro-electric power generation principles to create a highly versatile and exciting kit. The Sky-Z Hydro platform has over 20 possible wind/solar labs that can be tested. All of our Energy kits come in either AC (Alternating Current) or DC (Direct Current) configurations, the difference being in the type of electricity generator that the turbine will use. All kits come with a 6 Paddle hub that allows users to use anywhere from 1-6 Paddles in their design.

    • Quick Facts:
      • DC kits can be used across all grade levels elementary and above.
    • The Sky-Z Hydro can be powered through a variety of methods
      1. The custom designed paddles provided.
      2. Your own 3D printed paddles that can connect to the provided stem adaptor. We will provide the necessary .STL files for you to print free of charge (here (LINK)).
      3. The stem adaptor and all of our paddles are designed to connect using a .25” in (6.35mm) dowel. This dowel can be used to connect DIY paddle designs to the hub.
    • DC Configuration outputs a maximum of 4.5 V but will ranged from .5-4.5V

    Generator Configuration Options:

    DC (Direct Current)- Electricity is produced through a DC motor. PHW3

    ** Not Provided but suggested: .5 Liter, 1 Liter, and 1 gallon recycled, 20” in (508 mm) long by 15” in (381 mm) wide by 8” in (203.2mm) in height plastic storage container or large lab sink. (For testing power)


    NOTE: This product has a flat shipping rate of $12 per piece. Bulk rates and bulk discounts may apply. Please contact us for details.
