PA KidWind Challenge Workshop

118 Chambers Building, University Park, PA
Saturday, December 10, 2022 @ 9:00am - 3:00pm
9:00am - 3:00pm
One-Day Workshop

Have you wanted to participate in KidWind? Or need a refresher of the fundamentals of the KidWind Challenge? In this workshop you will engage in activities that will introduce you to the science behind wind energy while putting easy-to-use tools in your hands to prepare students to compete in the KidWind Challenge. Activities include designing turbine blades, building a wind turbine, testing the power output, and refining the turbine design to generate the most power. These investigations are powerful vehicles to expose students to “difficult-to-hold-onto” concepts like energy conversion and transfer, electricity generation, and our energy future. You will leave this workshop with a Vernier KidWind Basic kit and the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to introduce students to wind energy concepts.

New this year, we are regionalizing!
