An Exploration of Wind Energy and Wind Turbines

This An Exploration of Wind Energy and Wind Turbines lesson plan also includes:

How is wind produced and is it a good source for energy production? Get some air moving in your class. Learners take a pre-test, watch a demonstration of how electricity can be generated by wind energy, test different turbine factors for output efficiency, and read about this source of alternative renewable energy. Day one of the eight days suggests a PowerPoint or video as a way to introduce alternative energy, but does not link or suggest specific titles. Also, you will need to obtain a generator kit for the demonstration and turbines for experimentation.
