About the event
More event details coming soon
Students will work in groups to design and test the efficiency of an offshore energy farm made up of model wind turbines.
- Grades: 3–5
Students will work in groups to design an offshore energy farm consisting of model wind turbines and wave-energy converters. They use the Engineering Design Process to test and determine the most efficient place to install their turbines and converters while considering wave zones, whale migration patterns, shifting winds, and a possibly unstable ocean floor. (Grade 5 students will calculate the energy output and cost based on the parts used in construction)
