Developed by SunWind Solar, these 2-Volt, 500 mA solar modules are slightly larger than the 1.5-Volt modules. They are the same modules provided in the SolRun kit and can be used separately or to augment that set for other solar-electricity experiments.
Developed by SunWind Solar, these 3-Volt, 1 A solar modules are larger and more robust, allowing students to power bigger loads and generate more electricity for wiring experiments. They can be used with the bilge pumps to create solar-powered fountains or to run larger devices that require more power.
Developed by KidWind, this turbine kit has a wide variety of experimental variables, allowing students to fully customize their wind turbines. These variables include blade shape, blade size, blade quantity, blade tilt and gear ratios.
Developed by Sun Oven International, the All-American Sun Oven was developed to meet up to 70% of the cooking needs of a family of 6-8 people in a developing country using only the sun as an energy source.
Developed by KidWind, this kit allows students to build simple wind turbines by designing their blades, including determining the blade quantity and tilt angle. By limiting the number of experimental variables and eliminating the gearbox, this kit simplifies the design process.
Developed as an additional activity to be used with the KidWind Adjustable Learning Turbine, the Gen Pack allows students to build a simple alternating current generator by winding copper wire around a neodymium magnet. This pack can be used with the KidWind turbine or as a stand-alone hand crank generator.
Infrared Temperature Gun
The infrared (IR) Temperature Gun provides a temperature reading of the surface at which it’s pointed. Temperature can be read in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.
This KidWind Small Water Pump can be used in solar circuit experiments and provides the opportunity to quantitatively assess circuit performance by measuring the time it takes for the pump to move a pre-determined volume of water. This smaller pump is a 3-Volt 80 mA load and can be used with one or two of the 1.5-Volt modules.
This KidWind Sound and Light Board is a simple, low-power-requirement load that plays “It’s a Small World After All” and has built-in light emitting diodes (LEDs). This load will work in very low light conditions.
