Virtual Field Trips

Wind Energy

Date: Time: 10:00 am–12:00 pm
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 climbing 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.
