Too bad I never had this when I was a kid. This Renewable Energy Experiment Kit has a wind turbine,
solar cell, electrolytic cells, and a hand-operated dynamo which generate electricity that is stored in a rechargeable battery. The stored energy can then be distributed through the integrated circuit board to power a motor, LEDs, and buzzer using wiring terminated with alligator clips.
This is way better than that awful chemistry set I had back in the 1980’s. (Yes, I realize this dates me, but oh well) The kit’s sourcebook explains different methods for reducing energy costs at home while providing a primer about the world’s energy sources. Maybe this will help to create more adults interested in working in the renewable energy sector!
