Wired for Wind

The Wired for Wind kit uses the Wired for Wind experiment, designed as a National Youth Science Day experiment in 2011, to have youth engage in the engineering design process for wind energy technology. Participants build and design a wind turbine, explore the importance of blade pitch and map wind areas for their own community. Through the process participants engage in discussions about energy consumption and energy sources.
