With the support of Puget Sound Energy, KidWind is bringing the KidWind Challenge to Ellensburg, WA in April. The Challenge is open to 4th-12th grade students interested in testing their engineering and scientific prowess as they build small scale wind turbines to be tested in PSE's portable wind tunnel. This hands-on event engages students in renewable energy STEM.

The Washington KidWind Challenge will take place at Central Washington University on April 27, 2013. It is free to participate in the Challenge, and there are cash prizes awarded to winning teams! Registered teams receive free basic turbine materials from KidWind and a Challenge T-Shirt.

Space is limited to the first 30 teams that sign up for the Challenge. Register for free here.

At the KidWind Challenge, students design and construct small-scale wind turbines from scratch. We bring our custom-built, portable wind tunnel to the competition - where students teams test their wind turbines to see who can produce the most power! We will have some great cash prizes this year, as well as t-shirts for all participants.

The KidWind Challenge is FREE for students to participate, and open to any students from grade 4 through 12. We will have two seperate ae divisions for the competition - Middle School (4-8 grade) and High School (9-12 grade). Cash prizes awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams in each grade division.
