Wind is one of the most poorly understood sources of power
This ia a hands on workshop designed to give you the necessary tools to teach youths about windpower
Come participate in this intro-ductory workshop to wind po-wer, where you will learn the basic concepts of wind power and how to design and build the wind power machines from broken down spare machine parts, and how to make them from scratch.
We will even see which design produces the most power and pumps the most water
We will use props and models to explain the properties of the wind and how it is used to calculate the design and power generation capacity of a windmill. All explanations are age appropriate for children 8 and above.
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind.
