In this activity, learners explore how various energy sources can be used to cause a turbine to rotate. Learners will construct a turbine that is not strong enough to operate an electrical generator, but will show how the force of wind, water, and steam are used to make the turbine spin. During this experiment, learners will use the scientific method to write up their work, including hypothesizing and drawing conclusions. This activity is intended for use in conjunction with the activity "Getting Current" from the same resource (see related resources). However, this activity is designed to stand alone, if necessary. Note: this activity involves working with heat and steam (hot plate).
