This project is particularly inspiring to me because it reminds me of the immense fun I had building things with moveable parts out of Legos and K’NEX (which wasn’t always easy). Of course, at the time, I was too young to understand (or want to explore) the science behind it. I also admire their tremendous efforts in putting together a comprehensive curriculum to accompany the wind turbine kits.

The man running the stall had lost his voice so didn’t get too much information out of him but he had some examples that were pretty amazing.
