Design a wind turbine!

Saturday Science Club this weekend will be looking at the design and function of wind turbines. The children will have the opportunity to make a set of blades, and then test them out to see how many weights their design can lift. We will also see whether their designs can enable the turbine to generate electricity!

During this workshop we will be visited by Dr Gillian Smith, an off-shore wind turbine engineer, who will be able to help answer many questions you have about wind turbines!
