Every one of us has felt the breeze of a summer day in our hair. Many have seen the great windfarms that are popping up across the countryside. But how many of us know that we, too can be active and responsible players in the development and implementation of this important green technology? We will learn how our the exchange of energy in our earth and atmosphere lead to the generation of winds. We will explore the reasons why some places have never ending wind. Finally, will harness the power of our knowledge into the engineering of machinery that puts this power to beneficial use.
