UpWind Solutions is proud to be an active sponsor of the KidWind Project® and the KidWind Challenge.
The KidWind team of teachers, engineers and scientists is committed to energy education for the next generation. Over the past 5 years, the KidWind Project has trained more than 4500 teachers in 37 states about integrating wind energy science and technology into classrooms.
UpWind Solutions has been active in the KidWind Challenge, a student-oriented wind turbine design contest, for the past several years. During the challenge, students spend time designing and constructing their own wind turbines with the goal of creating something both efficient and elegant. Members of UpWind’s leadership team have acted as mentors and judges for the students participating in the KidWind Challenge at WindPower 2010 and 2011.
