Wind Energy Unit

Our wind energy unit was wonderful. Thanks to a grant from the VWR Foundation, we were able to purchase 20 Vernier Wind Energy Kits. Students learned about and explored circuits, collected/analyzed voltage and power data, designed turbine blades, experimented variables such as blade pitch, blade quantity, fan speed, resistance, and turbine distance.
