Kids and adults learned how to make wind turbine blades and got to test them.
On Saturday, March 16, 2019 more than 50 kids and adults learned how to make wind turbine blades and tested them in the mini-wind tunnel at the Ithaca Sciencenter helped by Cornell students in the ‘MAE4120 Community Wind Energy Research’ course led by Professor Rebecca J Barthelmie.
Two activities were really popular – designing blades to lift weights and designing blades to light a diode, although improving the designs proved just as popular. Students in MAE4120 are spending the semester researching leading edge erosion of wind turbine blades and were happy to put their knowledge to work in the mini-wind tunnel.
