Hi!

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

Cheers,

Ace

Cool !

I live close to a river, with high tide and low tide !

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

what are all of the items used and where can find them?

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.
