Students Blow Away the Judges at the Wisconsin KidWind Challenge

Students from Wisconsin and Kansas participated in the regional KidWind Challenge in early March.  KidWind Challenge  is a hands-on design celebration that engages middle and high-school students through the lens of wind and solar energy. Student teams design, construct and test small scale wind turbines and solar structures at events all over the world.
Wisconsin 5th to 12th graders from 18 different schools and 8 school districts gathered at UW-Madison’s Energy Institute to participate in the statewide challenge.  Three of the four winning teams that made nationals were from Darlingon High School and the fourth from Mauston High. Unfortunately, the 2020 National KidWind challenge has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic; but, next year’s national competition is already scheduled to take place June 8-10, 2021 in Indianapolis, IN. reNEWS.BIZ
