In this post we write about making of how to make working model of a wind turbine from cardboard school science project
A windmill or wind turbine is a device that converts the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical or electrical energy.
It typically consists of a rotor with blades or sails that rotates in response to the wind, which in turn drives a generator to produce electricity.
Wind turbines can be used for a variety of applications, including generating electricity for homes and businesses, pumping water, and milling grain. \
The terms “windmill” and “wind turbine” are often used interchangeably, but historically, a windmill was primarily used for mechanical tasks such as grinding grain, while a wind turbine is primarily used to generate electricity.

steps to make windmill model using cardboard and dc motor
- You will need a cardboard box, scissors, a DC motor, glue, a battery pack, wires, and a propeller.
- Cut the cardboard box into the desired shape and size for the windmill base and blades. The blades should be long and narrow and the base should be large enough to hold the motor and battery pack.
- Glue the DC motor to the center of the base, making sure that the shaft of the motor is sticking out.
- Glue the blades to the shaft of the motor. The blades should be positioned evenly around the shaft and at a slight angle to optimize the windmill’s power output.
- Use wires to connect the battery pack to the motor. Make sure the polarity of the wires is correct, otherwise, the motor won’t work.
- Attach the propeller to the shaft of the motor. Make sure it is securely attached and able to spin freely.
- Once the windmill is assembled, test it to make sure it spins when the battery is connected. If it does not spin, check the wiring and the propeller attachment.
- You can decorate the windmill to give it a more realistic look.
- You are now ready to enjoy your windmill model, you can place it in a windy area and see it spin.

How does a wind turbine generate electricity?
A wind turbine generates electricity by using the kinetic energy of the wind to turn a turbine, which then drives a generator to produce electricity.
What are the main components of a wind turbine?
The main components of a wind turbine are the rotor blades, shaft, generator, gearbox, controller, and tower.
