The Sky-Z Hydro is the newest member of our Turbine family. With powerful curriculum components that focus on Energy and 3D Printing our kits stand alone in the Education and Maker industries. Expanding on our hugely popular Sky-Z Turbine, the Sky-Z Hydro uses the best elements of our existing Limitless platform in terms of variables, coupled with advanced hydro-electric power generation principles to create a highly versatile and exciting kit. The Sky-Z Hydro platform has over 20 possible wind/solar labs that can be tested. All of our Energy kits come in either AC (Alternating Current) or DC (Direct Current) configurations, the difference being in the type of electricity generator that the turbine will use. All kits come with a 6 Paddle hub that allows users to use anywhere from 1-6 Paddles in their design.
