Pathway: Engineering Design w/ 3D Printing

One of the biggest potential gains in wind power rides on the engineering design of the blades. Longer. Stronger. More efficient. These are all challenges you can TEST during this phase of the engineering design process.

  1. Use the Build a Tower blueprint to create a testing unit
  2. Design and print two different blade sets
  3. Test efficiency with digital multi-meter

How is electricity made from wind?
