For our design and engineering class, we looked into clean energy alternative. We built a home made wind turbine and learned about it’s pro’s and con’s, and how to build one. We first designed our propellers and cut the cardboard to see how effective the propellers are. We attached this to a series of wires that led to a motor. I learned that our wind turbine would’ve been even effective if we had access to something that catch more wind. See my slide rocket bellow.
