Physics Wind Turbine Challenge

In my mind I believe that Dublin science students in the twenty--first century must learn:

  • how to work as an individual on a highly functioning team.
  • how to use computer aided design (CAD).
  • the benefits of rapid prototyping.
  • how to publicly explain and defend a hypothesis.
  • how to think of solutions to solve our energy crisis.

Mr. Putko, Mr. Cox and I designed the following challenge to help build these skills in our freshmen Physics students. Check out the following video and let the competition begin!
