Solar Thermal Lab-T&K
solar energy in the form of heat and making it
useful, for example, by converting it into electricity or
heating homes. Huge solar thermal towers are being
installed in sunny places around the world to convert
the sun's heat into electricity via turbines powered by
hot air. With this kit, you can build your own simple solar
thermal updraft towers to collect the sun's energy and
use it to spin colorful turbines. Test the solar turbines
in various configurations and compare the results from
two different towers. Learn about thermal updrafts and solar thermal
energy. 3 experiments, 8 pg manual, ages 7 and up.
