Wind Challenge Entries Being Taken
Registration for the 2019 Google Wind Challenge is underway. The sixth annual event that encourages middle and high school students’ interest in science, technology, and wind energy will take place on March 16 at the Fort Dalles Readiness Center. Teams of middle and high school students learn about wind turbine technology and design, and apply their skills in an all-day competition to build, test and present their wind turbine models to a group of judges. Prizes are given to the top three high school teams and middle school teams whose wind turbines have the fastest speed for transferring kinetic energy and generate the most electrical power. Students are welcome to register in teams of three to six students, and schools can register multiple teams. Teams can register through February 1 at windchallenge.org.
