Hydropower has been used to generate electricity since the late 19th century, and is still widely harnessed to this day. With the hydropower kit you can dive right in to learn all about the remarkable power of water and its applications throughout history! Learn through 12 interesting, hands-on experiments, including: building a water tower, waterwheel, sawmill and hammer mill; generating electricity to power LED lights by constructing your own hydroelectric power station; and performing various experiments involving adhesion, cohesion and surface tension to investigate the properties of water! Step-by-step instructions, as well as plenty of helpful information is provided in the included 32 page colour manual, to ensure an easy and fun understanding of the incredible potential of hydropower.
