The Power of Wind

Wind is the movement of air from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure. In fact, wind exists because the sun unevenly heats the surface of the Earth. As hot air rises, cooler air moves in to fill the void. As long as the sun shines, the wind will blow.

As long as the wind blows, people will harness it to power their lives. Students will work on projects to learn about the principles of simple circuits, electricity and Wind Energy. Students will build simple circuits powered by Wind energy. Students will be able to describe how a circuit works and follow directions to create different kinds of circuits. Students will design, build, test and evaluate their own wind mill and turbine.
