Wind Lift Classroom Kit
Teachers may register for one classroom kit, one conference, and one course per term.
During the Full Summer 2022 registration period, teachers may register for the chance to receive a Wind Lift classroom kit. Once the Full Summer registration period closes, one teacher is chosen at random to receive the classroom kit including professional development information.
Harness the power of the wind in this popular environmental engineering project by TeacherGeek. Kids will really construct an example Wind Lift to raise and lower a bucket, cycling through the engineering & design process to develop better solutions to lift heavier loads, or increase speed. Watch as they learn through doing, as concepts of wind power, energy, mechanical advantage, torque and work are grown through engaging labs and competitions. Blades can be made from raiding the recycling bin, 3-D printer creations or other found materials – your imagination is the limit. 50 registrations for the drawing will be accepted. Kits will be mailed to teachers mid-May. Learn more about this kit at https://1stmakerspace.com/store/p/wind-lift-activity.
