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, create and test their own prototype wind turbines.

Our Science Presenters will demonstrate designs of real turbines and explore with students the types of energy and forces at play. Using this research, student groups work collaboratively to bring their own wind turbine to life.

Using PocketLabs to capture and plot turbine velocity data in real time, groups can iterate on their design to improve its efficiency. What changes would they make?
