About the Workshop

Wind turbine workshops challenge students to design and build their own blades for a miniature wind turbine. This provides first-hand insight into the mechanics of wind technology, whilst facilitating discussion around climate and renewables, as well as building teamwork, problem solving and determination skills. Students then test their wind turbines effectiveness using a fan and visual voltmeter to measure electricity output.


This can be part of a Power Your World session.
