Mini Solar Tower with Fresnel Lens Ver. 7 Screen Solar Air Heater

This one turns a paper turbine but unlike version 6, this one has a tower. When I attach the tower I see a speed up with the paper turbine but the PC fan still doesn't turn.

This is a working mini solar tower powered by a fresnel lens that turns a turbine, a paper turbine. It's nowhere near powerful enough to turn a PC fan. This one is built like a screen/matrix solar air heater and isn't much like a solar tower like the 5 previous versions. I'm using my fresnel lens and mirror solar cooker setup for the structure.

Watch my "Where I use Math" video to see the chimney formula I used for this project:
