This unit introduces students to the concept of generating electricity from the wind. Students will familiarize themselves with these concepts through reading, answering assessment questions, and by conducting a lab where they will construct and test a windmill to observe how design and position affect the electrical energy produced. Based on their lab results, students will also engage in a follow-up activity using a magnetic compass to measure the actual power generated by their windmill.
