Think you or your class has what it takes to build the most efficient, functional, and innovative wind turbine? Try your luck at the KidWind Challenge! Be creative, have fun, and apply your knowledge of wind energy to win cool prizes.
This workshop will go “beyond pinwheels” with investigations of turbine
blade and generator designs that encourage and demand analytical thinking. With the potential to explore aspects of wind development from turbine and generator design to wind-wildlife interactions to how public perception impacts wind technology, you and your colleagues will leave inspired by the wide array of classroom and grade level adaptations that will work for you and your students. With applications for middle level and high school educators alike, you’ll leave the workshop with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to introduce students to wind energy concepts.
