This week’s Item of the Week is the SKY-Z PicoTurbine. This wind turbine demonstrates how alternative energy works. Aside from solar power, alternative energy is procured by the movement and rotation of turbines, whether by wind or water. When the turbines are rotated, it moves magnets around a coil of wire, which then creates the electrical current and produces electricity. You can borrow the SKY-Z PicoTurbine to demonstrate this form of alternative energy to your students.
