Build a Small Wind Turbine

X

About the Course

Drawing on over ten years of experience in teaching people how to build small wind turbines, Tom has developed a new design, customised to help you learn the most practical and theoretical skills in a short amount of time.

Learn to build an electricity generating wind turbine from simple materials, using a range of hand tools and techniques. You will carve a wooden blade, turn a copper coil, manipulate powerful magnets and fabricate a metal mounting together as a team. Once all the parts are brought together the complete turbine is tested on a short tower and you will see your hard work rewarded as the batteries fully charge.

This course is ideal for a community group, bunch of friends, a team-building exercise, or anyone else looking to get their hands dirty.
