Harness the Wind – Summer McClintock
2018 Mini-Grant Recipient
The video illustrates how students were empowered as they worked cooperatively to solve ways to enhance their blades to transfer enough energy to light a red LED bulb. Students learned how to communicate to family and friends ideas on transfer of energy (wind/solar) to electricity and its role in recyclable materials and renewable resources.
The project was themed around a book for students The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind plus five other wind-related books. Collaboration with a STEM coach from the WVU Extension allowed the materials and books purchased to be used by all 136 Pleasant View K-5 students.
