When and Where?
9th December 2017. 9am-5pm.
The Cube, Malvern
Get hands-on with our unique wind turbine making experience! We bring all the tools, materials and expertise; you come away with practical skills, an understanding of how and why wind turbines work, and a huge sense of achievement.
Drawing on 10 years’ experience teaching people how to build small wind turbines, we’ve developed a new accessible, inclusive experience for anyone and everyone! The wind turbine design has many component parts which each participant has a hand in building before they are all assembled together. This engages every individual and brings the group together to share in the fantastic sense of satisfaction of turning a pile of raw materials into an electricity-generating machine!
Together we build a machine to turn the power of the wind into electricity using simple materials and a range of hand tools. All participants carve a wooden blade, turn their own copper coil, and manipulate powerful magnets. As a team we assemble all the components to finish the turbine. Finally we test it and participants can see their work turned into fully charged batteries!
Why do it?
The design is a great way of demonstrating the basic underlying scientific principles behind energy generation and the associated simple electrical theory. The practical tasks are achievable regardless of skill and experience allowing participants to feel unintimidated and capable. The range of tasks means everyone stays interested and engaged!
What does it cost?
This course costs £70 per person.

What do they say?
Thank you for an excellent course, the whole thing was impressively well organised and I had both a powerful learning experience and a really enjoyable time. It may be a few years yet before I am able to build my own turbine, but it will happen eventually thanks to the knowledge and skills you shared. I will be recommending the course to friends
Kate Jones, Bristol course 2015
Thanks for a fantastic week. The teachers were amazing, it was great being able to try out so many different things, and the turbine looks magnificent

I would highly recommend V3 Power to anyone looking to build a Hugh Piggott wind turbine
