Rethink: Wind Turbine Challenge

Secondary students take the first step towards developing alternative and sustainable ways of generating electricity in the future.

You have reached the main content region of the page.

In this hands-on workshop, students follow an innovation process to design, test and refine their own prototype wind turbines.

Thinking about variables and fair-testing, student groups work collaboratively to bring their own wind turbine to life.

Students receive constant feedback on their designs by being able to visually observe the energy they are creating. Groups can iterate on their design to improve its efficiency.

How much energy can your class produce?
