Abstract

We developed a set of educational exhibits to educate the general public about a new renewable energy technology--Wind Power from Kites. The exhibits will be used in conjunction with a kite power demonstrator to be displayed at Overlook Farm, a Heifer International site. The exhibits include a scale-model replica of the demonstrator, virtual animations, a website that details work done on kite power, and an electrical system that demonstrates the potential uses of kite power in the developing world.
