Harnessing Wind

Learners explore the ways that engineers study and harness the wind. They study the different kinds of winds and how to measure wind direction. In addition, students learn how air pressure creates winds and how engineers build and test wind turbines to harness energy from wind. Excellent extension activities imbedded in this plan show learners how to make a wind vane and a wind turbine.
