ITEM #: KIT-18041
PRICE: $49.95

Resource Description
HYDROPOWER RENEWABLE ENERGY SCIENCE KIT. Hydropower has been used for hundreds of years in watermills and is now commonly used to generate electricity. Explore the power of water by building models and conducting experiments with them. Learn about how different devices are used to extract useful energy from moving water—from a waterwheel in a small stream to a giant turbine in a tidal power station. Build a waterwheel, a sawmill, and a hammer mill to harness the energy of moving water for different types of physical work. Investigate the intriguing properties of water by performing experiments involving surface tension, adhesion, and cohesion. Learn about water pressure by building a water tower, communicating vessels, and a water fountain. Construct a hydroelectric power station to generate electricity and light an LED. Learn about the sources of energy in ocean waves, tides, and rivers and discover how we can generate electricity from it. The full-color, 32-page experiment manual offers illustrated instructions and scientific information. Engaging activities for students age 8 and up. #KIT-18041.
