Wind is the most promising renewable energy source. Wind turbines are a source of renewable energy. No matter how much energy we collect and use from the wind, there is still more available.

The basic concept of wind turbine is converting kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy and then this mechanical energy into electrical energy.

Firstly, the force of the wind is caught by the turbine's blades and causes them to rotate. This motion spins the shaft of the turbine and results in mechanical energy. Then, the mechanical energy that drives the generator is converted into electrical energy.

When the wind blows, it has kinetic energy. A wind turbine collects this energy and is able to convert it into electrical energy.

The wind is an alternative to fossil fuels (natural gas, coal, and oil). Currently, fossil fuels are the most used energy source to all our energy needs. Although fossil fuels come from the earth, they are non-renewable because they have taken thousands of years to form, and can't be easily replaced.
WHAT CAUSES WIND TO FORM?
Wind is caused by difference in atmospheric pressure. Atmospheric pressure is a measurement that is given for the amount that air is pressing down on the Earth's surface. Air will always move from areas of high and low pressure to cancel out the differences in atmospheric pressure and this is what causes wind.

From all the available renewable sources of energy, wind has been tapped in the most efficient way.

A sudden increase in population made it necessary to look for alternate sources of energy so that in future we don't run out of fuel. Due to excessive use of fossil fuels, it has become the need of the hour that we must switch to some natural resources that can regenerate themselves.

Wind has proved to be one such renewable source to us. Wind as a renewable resource of energy has proved to be very useful during this energy crisis. It is a source that can never go obsolete.

WindTech kit is to understand the conversion of wind energy into electrical supply. It introduces the basic concept of wind turbine, of converting kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy and then this mechanical energy into electrical energy.

The kit contains all the parts required to build a mini working model of Wind Turbine. WindTech workshop is all about hands-on activity based with all working parts. Children will enjoy making their own windmill and understand all about the governing parameters to generate such green & clean wind energy.
