I am a junior planning on making this for STEM Festival. Is there a way to make a battery charger with something like this?

I'm thinking about using this with the power of rain
Not much power but will charge some batteries

Nice demo, a co-worker built a paddle wheel for a small creek in his backyard. It was driving a serpentine belt turning 28 car alternators, every month he gets a small check back from the local power company as it produces excess electricity year round.
