Gallery USB Fan - Marlborough House School

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:

  • USB power lead
  • A low inertia solar motor (normal motors take too much current so shouldn't be used)
  • An impeller or fan  blade
