Wind Turbine Project

By Tryce Johnson, 4th grader

The 4th grade class at Happy Elementary School participated in a wind turbine project.  In the assignment, we were expected to build a homemade wind turbine.  It did not have to be fancy, it just had to spin.  The best part of the assignment was the sky was the limit!  We could build our wind turbines out of whatever and however we chose.

In the process of building wind turbines, we learned plenty.  We learned how the wind generator works, and how the energy changes.  We also learned about mechanical energy.

Some examples of materials used in the projects are popsicle sticks, paper, fan blades, PVC pipe, and even legos.  While we were testing our wind turbines, we had another example of changing energy, one of our classmates brought a fan.  Some students decided to go over and beyond by making wind turbines that produce energy. 

Building wind turbines to apply knowledge is one of the ways the teachers at Happy Elementary make learning relevant and fun.
