Grace Notes for February 15

Kid Wind Challenge

Our 3rd – 8th grade students designed wind turbine blades (tested, improved, and tested again) with the goal of converting the kinetic energy of wind into electrical energy.  Along the way, we learned about the benefits of renewable energy, the projected future energy needs of our country, and the units for measuring electrical energy – volts, watts, power, and energy (Mary Van Eaton).

Many thanks to our Science Teacher Mrs. Van Eaton and to our Engineer-in-Residence Terry Shields for leading students through this amazing learning experience. 

     

With joy and gratitude,

Principal Susan Kilbane
