Wind Energy!

from Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Program image

Can you catch the wind? Discover how wind is
harnessed and transformed electricity! In this workshop students will build a hand
turbine and anemometer to help understand effective design for wind power
generators. Topics covered include potential and kinetic energy, electrical
energy and energy transformation.

Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Ann Arbor, MI
United States

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum provides an opportunity for people of all ages to discover and enjoy the wonder of science, math and technology in an interactive environment that promotes science literacy through experimentation, exploration and education. Our distance learning programs are as interactive and hands-on as a visit to our museum! All programs include a kit of materials that includes everything students need to engage with our educators.


MISSION: Creating moments of discovery that inspire curiosity, exploration, and respect for STEM and the natural world. 

VISION: A world where curiosity today leads to more purposeful lives tomorrow.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

NGSS
4-PS3-1.
Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
4-PS3-2.Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
4-PS3-4.Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
4-ESS3-1.Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.
MS-PS3-1.Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
MS-PS3-2.Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
MS-PS3-3.Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
MS-PS3-4.Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
MS-PS3-5.Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

– Energy: Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
MS-LS1-6 – From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms
