KidWind 

Every year we are blown away by the knowledge and resourcefulness that students dedicate to their wind turbine. We have tons of fun at these events, poking and prodding, blowing and spinning, but we never lose sight of our broader mission behind these KidWind Challenges: 

  • Get students excited about the promise and opportunities of renewable energy—specifically wind power—and its relationship to global climate change.

  • Foster opportunities for students to build, test, explore, and understand wind energy technology at a manageable scale.

  • Get students—particularly girls and underrepresented populations—excited about careers in STEM fields related to renewable energy.

  • Build capacity of teachers, coaches, and other educators to better understand wind energy technology and development, as well as its promise and limitations.

  • Connect students to mentors and role models in the renewable energy industry.
