The goal of wind power is to create a model turbine on an unmodified CD disk and generate the most amount of power when faced with a fan. This week we finished up a solid design for wind power. We cut out a design out of balsa wood sheets and curved them after soaking. It was our fastest design and we can't wait to see how it performs against other competitors!
Making great progress on our speedy little car over winter break! The goal of Electric Vehicle is to get the car to move about 8 meters as fast as it can, and then stop at a certain distance further as accurately as it can. Very fun to make and we've learned so much about electrical engineering in the process. It's nearly ready to compete with and it definitely has the potential to place.
