For a couple of years we have been offering various wind gnereating kits such as the Savonius Wind Turbine. These kits do quite well but schools may find they need more to teach energy generation as part of a STEM program. So now Picoturbine offers multiple kits for Wind and Solar energy generation. There are several designs that depend on the size & design of the windmill (Mini, Standard, and Limitless) as well as the systems ability to generate AC, DC or both.

Adventures this morning consisted of a blown out bicycle tire followed by a 3 miles walk in bike shoes. So forgive me if this post is a bit on the lazy side. We’re just going to spotlight some recent videos taken for our youtube channel
Let’s start with a video of the recently discussed Magnetic “Sand” Timer in action:
Here is DStar’s Vacuum Engine/Flame Licker Engine in action:
A silly solar powered Sock Monkey
One of the large, 6″ MOVA Political Earth Globes doing its spinning thing:
Finally, the DStar Basic Stirling Engine in action:
DStar Engines has produced some of the highest quality and widest variety of Stirling Engines to hit the market. From their popular Low-Temperature Stirling Engine, to the unique Stirling Engine Powered Vehicle. Now two new varieties of Stirling Engine are available.
The first is the Magnetic Ringbom Stirling Engine.
Alternative energy is rapidly becoming one of the major topics of study in the classroom and Spectrum has supplied kits that produce energy via solar, hydrogen and wind. In that latter production category we have recently added a series of Savonius Wind Turbines and Windmill generators by PicoTurbine:
