Hydropower has been used for hundreds of years in watermills and is nowcommonly used to generate electricity in applications such ashydroelectric dams and tidal power plants. Explore the power of waterby building models and conducting experiments with them. Learn abouthow different devices are used to extract useful energy from movingwater — from a waterwheel in a small stream to a giant turbine in atidal power station.

Build a waterwheel, a sawmill, and a hammermill to harness the energy of moving water to do different types ofphysical work. Investigate the intriguing properties of water byperforming experiments involving surface tension, adhesion, andcohesion. Learn about water pressure by building a water tower,communicating vessels, and a water fountain.

Construct a hydroelectric power station to generate electricity andlight an LED. Learn about where the energy in ocean waves, tides, andrivers comes from, and discover how we can generate electricity fromthem.

The full-color, 32-page experiment manual offers illustratedinstructions and scientific information. Ages 8 and up.
