Help students explore how electrical energy arrives at its final destination, as well as introduce alternative sources of energy with KELVIN®’s Power Electrical Distribution Grid Lab.
Each student will construct a model home from the pattern provided. The students will then assemble a simple LED and resistor light circuit that is installed into the model house.
The model then snaps into the power grid base and picks up current from overhead wires. Students can take measurements using a multimeter. Students can then take their house off the grid and supply electrical energy with solar voltaic cells and even the optional wind turbine generator.
The Lab for 24 Students includes: grid base, preprinted house patterns on cardstock, all electronic parts, solar cells and multimeter. Requires batteries and assembly. Wind turbine generator (shown) not included, see below.
