The Power of the Wind includes several small projects that are designed to teach about the wind and its uses while introducing engineering design and engaging learners in doing, testing, reflecting and revising. These instructional resources are appropriate for learners ages 8-adult. They are designed to reflect the goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program, which promotes learning by-doing and focuses on developing skills for a lifetime and are aligned to National Standards in Mathematics and Science. The materials were developed by Jana Sebestik in consultation with Sue Larson, Bill Million, and George Reese.
This wind power curriculum is a joint project of the Office for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE), the College of Engineering, and University Extension at the University of Illinois, and 4-H.
