Description

In this workshop, students follow the engineering design process as they test how changing the characteristics of a wind turbine’s blade affects its efficiency. After exploring which variables have the greatest impact on energy production, the students design, build, and test their own blades with an emphasis on improving their turbine. The program also incorporates science process skills and math framework connections, such as graphing and reporting results.
