DCC Eighth Grade Biology Students Find the Answers Blowing in the Wind


Students in Mrs. Amy Gillung’s biology class developed  STREAM projects for harvesting the wind. The students asked themselves what is the best design for a wind turbine that can harvest the maximum amount of energy after a lesson in various forms of energy.

Students have learned about air pressure, pressure and air movement, and wind patterns. The students also learned about the design of a turbine, the components, and the ways they can be utilized as a renewable resource.

Mrs. Gillung was really pleased with the students designs and completed projects.  She used a fan to give the students a chance to really see their turbines in motion.
