Alma 5th graders get hands on with wind turbines

Fifth grade students in Mrs. Glander’s science classroom at Alma Area Schools got hands on with wind energy the week of October 12. As part of their conservation unit, students utilized the Buffalo County 4-H STEM wind energy toolkit to act as engineers in designing, building, and testing wind turbine prototypes. Students discussed gear ratios and blade pitch and measured the voltage output with multimeters. Thinking critically through the use of the inquiry method is an integral part of developing youth who contribute to their communities as adults.
