These desk top fans were made by year 6 students at the Marlborough House School. They have been made using a low current and silent solar motor with an impeller blade on it. They are powered by a USB port.
The students were given a pre-made fan mounting bracket (made by drilling out a recess in 6mm PVC sheet and glued motor in).
To make this fan you will need:
- A USB power lead
- A low inertia solar motor (normal motors take too much current so shouldn't be used)
- An impeller or fan blade
