KidWind Challenge

Virtual PA KidWind Challenge

Date: May 12, 2021

Registration Closes: April 17, 2021

Have your students try their luck at the Virtual PA KidWind Challenge! Students incorporate engineering and science to build powerful small-scale wind turbine models using the program White Box Learning and compete with students from around the state to generate the most electricity.  Be creative, have fun, and apply your knowledge of wind energy to win!

The KidWind Challenge is a student-oriented wind turbine design contest. Over a period of a few months, students spend time designing and constructing their own wind turbine model using White Box Learning with the goal of creating a device that is efficient and cost effective. To accomplish this task, and arrive prepared at a Challenge, students must perform research to better understand the science of wind, be analytical about testing protocols, think creatively about solutions to problems and work collaboratively to get their project completed on time.
