The Windy City Challenge

Take a look at Make It Work, our exciting hands-on engineering program at Washington Jesuit Academy. Students were challenged to work together to design and build a wind turbine that spins when the wind blows.

Catching the wind can be tricky business. Students designed multiple models testing the effectiveness of the turbine using different sized blades, materials, and structural designs. The young green activists at Washington Jesuit Academy learned that harnessing the wind can provide a renewable energy source to power homes and buildings.

Imagine the electricity that could be generated in Chicago with these students wind turbine designs.
