Our ingenious Transparent Alternator Kit has been designed to take the mystery out of how electricity is produced. This little device can be assembled easily in 20 minutes without tools. That's when the discoveries begin! What can you power with your alternator? How is electricity generated from a magnet and some copper wire? A wonderful hands-on introduction to electricity. With modifications, you can produce enough electricity to charge a cell phone! Once built, this alternator can be unwound, disassembled, and rebuilt over and over again.
