An easy demonstration of a small turbine with a paddled wheel and a DC motor as a dynamo in order to generate electricity with falling water power or with tap water pressure power.

    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

    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.
