Can someone help me use an exercise bicycle to build a kid-powered fan?
My fourth grade classroom is very hot in June. I would love to teach students how to use an exercise bicycle, their energy, and other needed parts to build a kid-powered fan or air conditioner. I have an exercise bicycle (basement - gathering dust). I also have a ready supply of kid-power. Some of my students have enough energy to ride the bike all day. My dream situation would be to cool (not just move) the air. But, if moving air is the best I can do, so be it. I would like to help those that are able to actually build this - thus we are in need of readable instructions. I think I would be able to obtain custodial/boy scout leaders to assist. This might even interest some of the 7th and 8th graders. Please help us!!
