Lesson 6: Optimizing Wind Turbine Blades, High School

In this session, students make revisions to their original wind turbine blades to optimize the amount of electrical output they produce. Additionally, students can combine two miniature wind turbines to determine whether the "wind farm" can generate enough voltage to turn on a light bulb. This will call on access to web content including videos, images and text. Additionally, students will need to use fine and gross motor skills to create and modify wind turbines.
