Online Wind Turbine Challenge
From Groceries to Garbage to Generator
Our team is from Blue Ash, Ohio, United States. We are from Ursuline Academy, and are in the 9-12 age category. We are Claudia, Angelina, and Molly who are seniors at Ursuline Academy in Cincinnati, Ohio USA. In an effort to keep our turbine lightweight yet sturdy enough to capture the wind, we had the idea of using grocery bags. We had all seen how the wind catches grocery bags and causes them to “fly.” Similarly, it was eco-efficient to reuse these bags as we have seen them flying around in nature where they don’t belong. The plastic bags “Drifting through the wind” reminded us of the opening to Katy Perry’s song “Firework” which is what also helped inspired our design.
