Wind Turbine Lab
Engineer and test wind turbines for maximum electrical output! This engineering challenge will allow participants to compete against each other to try and design the best turbine. After getting some basic principles about this technology, teams will embark on an inquiry lesson, having access to the necessary materials to design, build, and test their experimental wind turbine blade designs using a simulated wind tunnel. They will measure the energy output of their models with voltage meters in order to compare the efficiency of their designs. Data will be entered into an active leaderboard!
