Pedal Power

The Pedal Power® is a tool that you can use in your classroom to teach about energy production, use, and conservation. Students can actually ride a stationary bike to power a generator, which in turn powers an incandescent light bulb, a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL), a LED light bulb, a  hair dryer, a radio, and a fan. A photovoltaic (PV) panel is available for use to power the equipment above as well. 

This kit includes:

  • Bicycle Stand with Generator & Bike (minimum 24″ wheel)
  • Pedal Power Display Board & Power Cord
  • Telescoping Outer Display Legs (2) & Inner Display Legs
  • Light Bulbs (Incandescent, Fluorescent, and LED – 5 each)
  • Spare 25 AMP Fuses (2)
  • Electric Fan & Electric Hair Dryer
  • Radio and Power Adapter
  • Owner’s Manual
  • Optional Items (see checklist below)
