Year 7 STEM students build wind turbines

‘Alternative energy sources’ is an important STEM topic and our Year 7s are learning about this by building their own alternative energy sources.

Students designed 3 x different wind turbines, with each design getting progressively more advanced. They tested the turbines in front of a large fan to see if they spun fast enough to lift a small metal weight and challenged themselves by continuing to increase the weight in order to test their designs.
