Wind Energy Workshop

Wind Energy: Using Moving Air to Do Work

Moving air can be harvested to generate electricity. Students can measure wind speed and direction, determine wind variations by location, and find the best place for a wind turbine. Investigate wind turbine design factors like height, location and speed; blade factors like length, shape, number, material, weight, curvature, pitch and twist; and determine how much wind energy you can produce at your school.
