About this Kit
This Project Based Learning (PBL) kit is featured by the experiential hands-on learning projects. This kit includes 6 working models which users will get the chance to build by hand (e.g. wind turbines and earthquake detectors). It also comes with an illustrative tutorial books that shows step by step building procedures while also covers the indepth concepts related to the topics of green energy generation, circuit building, and diagnostics.
The main topics
1) Generating DC power
In the first two projects, you will learn about the generation of DC through a simple solar panel and galvanic cell model. You will also learn the technique using a digital multimeter to measure the voltage being generated.
2) Generating AC power
After learning basic DC, you will be introduced to AC using a wind turbine setup that generates AC power from wind. You will then use the Oscilloscope to study the output. You will also learn a very interesting rectifier circuit that turns AC into DC.
3) Building simple circuits
You will build a functional earthquake alarmer and learn the basics of circuit connections Exercises will involve putting together breadboard circuits in series and parallel & studying their characteristics.
4) Power and energy
The project involves building a hand crank generator. Concepts of power, energy, and energy will be explored. The oscilloscope will be used to assess the generated voltage and power from the operation of the model.
5) Controlling a DC motor
You will build a model Ferris wheel. Based on the knwoledge learn from previous sessions, you will build a simple control circuit. Transistors and the PWM technique will be explored to control the speed of rotation.
Generate DC power from the sun
Generate electricity from salt water
Generate AC power from wind and convert it into DC
Build your own earthquake detector and alarm system
Generate power by manually cranking, not very efficient though
