This project involves eighth grade students working in teams to build fully functioning windmills. They develop an understanding and awareness for wind energy sources, as well as a sense of sustainable energy. The highlight of the unit for students is when they get to test the output of their windmill using small fans. Shown in the photo at the right are teachers from Meadowview School participating in a training so that they may use the project in their classroom.
