Kidwind Design Challenge 


The KidWind Design Challenge registration deadline is next Monday, November 15th.

Students in grades 6-12 will compete in teams of up to four to produce the most powerful and creative student wind turbine. These wind turbines will be tested in a portable wind tunnel and evaluated by a panel of judges. Regional competitions will be held in Juneau, Fairbanks, Anchorage and Kotzebue for schools in these communities. Other competitions will be help in individual communities, as well as in Girdwood at the International Wind Diesel Conference on March 6th, 2011. The teams with the highest scores will be the Challenge winners. Teams do not have to be from schools that are already a part of Alaska Wind for Schools. We invite teams from all schools to participate.
