Description: Did you know wind is the fastest growing energy source?! But how do you get energy from the wind? Wind turbines are your answer. A wind turbine is a device that produces electricity from the kinetic energy of the wind. Now your students can be engineers to design and construct their own wind turbine.

The KidWind Challenge encourages students to learn about renewable energies. It also stresses the importance of wind technologies and their role in helping to make the world less dependent on fossil fuels for the production of electricity!

The KidWind Challenge is opened to both middle school and high school students. Please note, pre-registration is required. The last day to register a KidWind team is one week before the event, Wednesday, September 23, 2013.
