Working With Wind: Wind Turbine Engineering
Tuesday May 2, 2017
7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Turbines use wind to create electricity. There are a variety of sizes and shapes of these turbines in use today supplying electricity to small lamps all the way to homes and businesses! In this workshop, participants design and build a wind turbine to see how much electricity it can generate! But it doesn’t stop there! Watch other turbines as they are tested on the turbine tester to see how much electricity they can generate. Can you produce even more electricity by re-designing your turbine? This engineering activity promotes problem-solving practices, sharpening of observation skills, teamwork, and creativity through an a hand-on engaging activity that uses everyday materials and wind from a vacuum cleaner! For tweens in grades 5-7. Space is limited. Please pick up a ticket at the desk in the Children's room starting 15 minutes before the program begins.
