Introduction of Working Model of the Windmill
Working Model of the Windmill Summery: In this article you will learn how to make working model of the windmill with using household material like cardboard paper cups etc, this projects can be demonstrate in science fair or science exhibition. Windmill or wind turbine is one of the best methods to transform wind energy into electrical energy.
This project is recommended for Grade or Class: 1 to 5
Windmill Project from Cardboard: A simple Windmill or wind turbine can be made by using simple household things to understand the aerodynamics and function of wind mill.
Corrugated Cardboard Sheet
Cardboard sheets of 9×9 and 6×6 square inch are required for making of blades and base of wind mill respectively.
Stand of the wind mill is made with disposable cups and blades are attached to it.
Round Craft Sticks
Round sticks are used to attach blades with stand.
- Paper tape
- Scotch tape
- Some weight
STEPS OF CONSTRUCTION
Making Of Blades
At the inside edges, make a cut of approximately 1 cm vertically and slightly tilt the blades to give them aerodynamic shape so that they can move with the wind
Making of Tower For Wind Mill
- Pass the round stick with blades through the T-tower.
- Tie free end of the thread with end of the stick.
- Put some weight in the cup to check whether the wind mill is able to raise weight or not.
Check the wind mill working by using an air dryer or blower.
