Announcing Our February Kit

Build a Wind Lift

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. In this activity, youth will engineer a wind turbine to life a heavy load or raise a bucket with speed. Youth will learn how the shape, number and angle of turbine blades affects the output of their wind lift. There will be plenty of extra parts to try different designs. A real pick me up.
