Learn how to harness the power of the wind by building your own turbine!

For this program we will be traveling to Jennette’s Pier where students learn how to harness energy from the wind, advantages and disadvantages of wind energy, the importance of clean wind and ideal locations to install wind turbines to maximize energy output.

Through construction of their own “turbine” and discussions about alternative energy, participants in this program gain an understanding of how this technology works and its importance for future energy generation.
