By building your own wind turbine, you will have the opportunity to learn about sustainable energy and technology using the micro:bit, the Building Blocks and the Climate Action Kit. This project is a great way to understand how technology can be used to reduce our reliance on non-renewable sources of energy and combat climate change.
Using the steps below, you are going to build and code a simulated wind turbine that you can turn on/off and control the direction of using the dial component.
Use the arrows below to navigate through the step-by-step building instructions.
