In all schools, children are asked to give a project on how they can protect the environment. So, today we will learn how to make a DIY wind turbine. This project will help the children to understand the conversion of wind energy to electricity.


First, let us collect the supplies.



Steps To Make A DIY Wind Turbine

Step 1: The first step is to make some small circles.
