Henley High Engineering Club is hosting the second annual KidWind Engineering Competition this Saturday, March 10.
Engineering students from Brixner Junior High, Henley Middle School and Henley High School are designing wind turbines for this local competition.
On Saturday they will test them to determine how much power they can harness from the wind.
The top two in each grade category will have an opportunity to compete at the national level in Chicago. Those who place third, fourth and fifth will be invited to regional competitions.
Last year, 12 students from Henley High School and Henley Middle School went to national KidWind competition in Anaheim, Calif.
The event is open to the public. Spectators will have the chance to participate in STEM activities, too. Concessions will also be open, and Dutch Bros Coffee will have a coffee cart on site.
Contact Henley engineering teacher Kristi Lebkowsky at email@example.com for more information.
