My 9th grade science students are fun, enthusiastic individuals who always try their best to grasp the material. Like most young people, they learn best from hands-on experiences rather than memorizing or listening to lectures.
In my science class, students have the opportunity to do more than just read about the subject.
As much as possible, students engage in science by designing investigations, experimenting, and creating solutions for challenging problems. Along the way, they use collaboration in small groups to sharpen their creativity and engineering abilities. They also connect what they've learned in class to real-world applications.
My students are eager to enhance their learning through hands-on, collaborative lessons that test their problem-solving, science content, and engineering skills.
With the six wind turbines, my students will have the ability to enhance their understanding of energy transformation and electromagnetism in an engaging way. They will have the opportunity to persevere, problem-solve, and design a wind turbine that makes a light bulb glow.
These turbine kits will provide my students with another opportunity to develop social skills, to work together, and to achieve the satisfaction of meeting a goal as a group.
Students will also develop the ability to construct and engineer their own turbine blades and to iteratively redesign their wind turbine setups to achieve maximum light bulb voltage.
