Sunday December 11th
Participants will initially learn the basic principles of wind turbines. Participants will have the opportunity to analyze and understand how a blade’s number, length, shape and pitch angle will affect the power output. Then they will be challenged to build their own wind turbine in order to produce maximum power output.
Led by: Dr. Memhet Goksu, Millersville University
