  9. Highway Wind Turbine

  10. Wind Farm in Palm Springs, CA

  11. Off Shore Wind Farm

  12. The science of it all... Experiment Design contest Challengers try to optimize all variables (within certain parameters) to achieve the best results for the target quantity • Control variables • Independent variable • Dependent variable

  13. The Challenge • Within the remaining time, you and your group are to design a set of blades to complete a wind turbine to harness the most amount of wind energy.

  14. Materials • Masking tape • Wooden dowels • Cardboard

  15. Parameters • Only use the permitted materials • Everyone uses the same wind source • The wind source will be a fixed distance away • You must use the dowels to attach your blades to the rotor • You can have 1 – 12 blades

  16. Testing your results • Once you attach your blades to complete the turbine, your output voltage will be measured using a multimeter. Your goal is to have the highest reading.
