Regional Challenge

The KidWind Challenge is the ultimate wind energy learning experience where middle and high school students design, build, and test small wind turbines.

What is a KidWind Challenge?! Check out this video or visit The KidWind Challenge website!

When students participate in the KidWind Challenge they will:

  • Discover the promise and limitations of renewable energy technology

  • Design, build, and test a functional creative renewable energy structures

  • Compete with their peers in a supportive environment

Consider the following when building your team:

  • Competing students must be in 3rd-12th grade

  • Teams must consist of 1-10 students (we find 3-4 to be ideal)

  • Each team needs an adult coach (teacher, parent, etc.)

We can't wait to see you at the 2020 Appalachian State KidWind Challenge

What else should I know?

  • This Challenge will run from 9am until 1pm
  • This Challenge is restricted to KidWind Generators only! No DIY!
