KidWind student design team

VES Wind Turbine Team

Valley Elementary’s Wind Turbine Team designed their first gear on the computer, printed it on the 3D printer, and began to evaluate the gear to see what type of changes that they need to make. This design to creation to evaluation to improve process is known as rapid prototyping. The KidWind wind turbine design competition provides our students with the opportunity to engage in the 5 C’s that are part of a Profile of a Virginia Graduate: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Citizenship.
