For Ages 8-12 (registration required)
Week of March 22
Design and build a wind lift to capture and experience the power of the wind! Wind lifts make learning about wind power, energy, mechanical advantage, torque, work, and other scientific concepts fun and understandable.
Participants will receive all the materials in this 4-H kit to engineer a wind turbine to lift a heavy load or raise a bucket with speed. With extra parts to try different designs, you can investigate how the shape, number and angle of turbine blades affects the output of the wind lift. Registration is required and limited.
