Wind energy is growing worldwide, and wind turbines are big producers in the great plains. 72% of our electricity came from wind on April 2, 2020, a new record for the region. This virtual field trip will explore wind turbine design as it relates to the physics of wind. You may never look at a wind turbine the same again. I put a go pro on my hard hat and climb a wind turbine just to show you what’s inside. I will give you some examples of how to build your own mini wind turbine at home.
