Create your own propeller or wind turbine rotor with this kit from TeacherGeek!
Create your own propeller or wind turbine rotor with this reference guide!
Students learn little from the experience of snapping pre-made and pre-designed propellers and wind turbine rotors onto their projects. We wanted them to learn through inquiry and experimentation; designing, testing and re-designing. What did we find? Students absolutely love to build their own rotors/propellers, and learn an amazing amount from it.
The kit come with a hub that mounts directly to dowel. The hub can attach 1-to-6 blades.
Plenty of extra skewer sticks are included for alternate blade designs and experimentation. For short blades, bamboo project sticks can be used instead of skewers.
You will need to supply recycling bin materials and tape for the blades.
Do you need a hub that mounts directly to a motor? Try our Mini Hub Assembly (Red) - Motor Mount.
