Wind Challenge

May 3, 2014

Thank you for participating in 2014 Wind Challenge, a hands-on program that fuels student interest in science, technology and wind energy!

See pictures from the event.

During the event, teams of three to six middle school and high school students learned about wind turbine technology and design, and applied their skills in an all-day competition to build, test, and present their wind turbine models to a group of judges.

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes were given to three high school teams and three middle school teams whose wind turbines had the strongest mechanical power, fastest speed for transferring the kinetic energy, and the most electrical power generated. More than 100 students participated in the event!

This year’s event was organized by Columbia Gorge Community College and a href="http://www.google.com/about/company/">Google.
