Build a Small Wind Turbine (Sold out)
Generate electricity with a homemade wind turbine.
Join Tom Dixon of V3 Power to build a wind turbine yourself, from scratch.
Drawing on over ten years of experience in teaching people how to build small wind turbines, Tom has developed a new design, customised to help you learn the most practical and theoretical skills in a short amount of time.
Learn to build an electricity generating wind turbine from simple materials, using a range of hand tools and techniques.
You will carve a wooden blade, turn a copper coil, manipulate powerful magnets and fabricate a metal mounting together as a team.
Once all the parts are brought together the complete turbine is tested on a short tower and you will see your hard work rewarded as the batteries fully charge.
By hand building all the elements you will gain confidence in your own practical ability.
The range of tasks involved allows you to get a sense of which skills you may be interested in developing further.
Get a fantastic sense of achievement as you see the project develop from a pile of raw materials through to a fully working system, and get a greater understanding of the underlying scientific principles involved.
This course is ideal for a community group, bunch of friends, a team-building exercise, or anyone else looking to get their hands dirty.
Tom Dixon has a background in physics and is V3’s most rounded engineer. He has taught on nearly 50 wind turbine courses and overseen over 30 installations.
