Working with Wind: Turbine Engineering-Grades 1-8
Wednesday August 2, 2017
11:00 AM until 12:00 PM
Love science and engineering? Register for this interactive science program at the library!
Registration is required and limited to 30. This prorgam is for grades 1-8. 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 the turbine? This engineering activity promotes problem-solving practices, sharpening of observation skills, teamwork, and creativity through hands-on engaging activity that uses everyday materials and wind from a vacuum cleaner!
