Build Your Own Wind Turbine
Learners construct an electricity-generating wind turbine out of a plastic bottle.
Learners build a wind turbine and test it to see how much energy is created.
How Do We Convert Mechanical Energy into Electrical Energy?
In this activity, learners use a compass, powerful magnet, and copper magnet wire to build a special generator known as a dynamo.
Wind Power: Creating a Wind Generator
This lesson challenges groups of learners to design and construct a wind generator with the most electrical output.
A Model Nuclear Power Plant Steam Turbine
In this activity (on pages 20-23 of PDF), learners build a model of a power plant using simple materials.
In this activity and demonstration about electricity and magnetism, learners observe how the current generated when one copper coil swings through a magnetic field starts a second coil swinging.
Weather Vane and Anemometer
In this meteorology activity, learners construct simple devices to measure the direction and speed of wind.
