To conclude our in depth unit on Energy, students in the 3rd grade are working in engineering teams to create a windmill apparatus that will lift a small toy off of the floor. This activity combines students’ understanding of wind energy as a renewable resource and the engineering design process. I must say that I was very much impressed by the thought, planning, creating, testing, and improving done by these exceptional engineers! You can see it for yourself in the pictures below!
