Make a Wind Turbine

Wind turbines allow us to harness the energy of wind and turn it into electricity to keep our TVs powered and our ipads charged.

Did you know that the blade tips of a large wind turbine can reach speeds of more than 320 km per hour – that’s super-fast!

Watch our video to make and test your own 3D printed wind turbine at school or home.

You will need:

  • Step-by-step guide: make a hydro turbine
  • 3D printer file: hydro turbine
  • Optional resources (for teachers or grow-ups)
