STEM approved! With this set you can explore the electrical energy storage specificities of capacitors, as isolated components or as part of a system if connected to other Horizon kits, including with fuel cells, solar cells, or mini-wind turbines. Turn human muscle power into electricity using a hand held crank device, store energy into a capacitor using a hand-crank,
measure the storage level using the storage meter, end-to-end electricity generation, storage and usage cycle, and experiments dedicated to energy storage.
