The WindPitch Education Kit includes a miniature real-working wind turbine (wind power generator) designed for students to evaluate the pitch (angle setting) of the profiled blades. Up to 12 profile blades can be installed for evaluation. Learn how the blade pitch, blade shape, and number of blades affect the power output of the wind turbine to maximize the output power. Experimentation also teaches about stalling or reduction of the wind turbineís rotational speed to protect itself under strong wind conditions. WindPitch includes 3 different types of profiled blades and 1 type of polypropylene sheet blades in a complete package that allows many blade parameterís evaluation. The special 3 Phase AC alternator used in the WindPitch is similar to the one used in real commercial wind turbines. WindPitch comes with an LED Voltmeter/Music Maker Module to demonstrate the power created from the wind energy in the form of musical sounds and illuminated LED lights. Contained inside is a complete curriculum on wind energy with easy to follow experiment manual, assembly guide, and background history on the technology and wind power generators.

Our toy experts have indicated that the WindPitch Education Kit strengthens the following Intelligences:
Children with strong Math-Logical intelligence have the ability to reason deductively and can recognize and manipulate abstract patterns or relationships. Students who have strong problem-solving and reasoning skills will excel in this intelligence.
Children with Spatial intelligence have the ability to create visual-spatial representations and can transfer them mentally or concretely. Students who exhibit this intelligence need a mental or physical "picture" to understand the information being presented.
Children with strong Interpersonal intelligence work effectively in a group and understand and recognize the goals, motivations and intentions of others. Students with this intelligence thrive in cooperative, group work situations and are skilled at communicating, mediating and negotiating.
Children who are strong in the Intrapersonal intelligence have the ability to understand one's own emotions, goals and motivations. These students have good instincts about their strengths and abilities.
Children with strong focus in this intelligence will exhibit an affinity for all things nature. These students will enjoy and thrive when learning about nature topics, such as flora and fauna.
