Powerwheel Water Turbine Hydro Generator
The PowerWheel is a micro hydro generator - an amazing tool for teaching lessons about energy, hydro-power and other renewable sources of energy. The PowerWheel can be used to enhance lessons for students from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The PowerWheel unit hooks up to a classroom faucet or outside hose for easy use.
Teaching energy, especially renewable energy to students of all ages, has never been more important. Offering today’s children an understanding of sustainable sources of power, gives them the power…to care for their future. As a teaching tool, the PowerWheel can be used in conjunction with energy lessons for kids that reach beyond the classroom, connect sources of electricity back to nature, and teach towards a cleaner, more renewable future. The PowerWheel provides an entry point for expanded lessons in natural energy sources including water, wind and solar power.
Go with the flow…of energy! Convert your students energy into focus by getting them engaged with water wheel experiments and interactive exploration as the PowerWheel transforms water into electricity. The PowerWheel is a hands-on, safe and engaging teaching tool. It can be incorporated into renewable energy lessons, your general physics curriculum or as a way for your students to witness the conversion of energy through potential, kinetic, mechanical, electrical and radiant states. Because it’s fun, accessible and relevant for a broad age-range of students, the PowerWheel can be shared throughout your whole science department.
