For students 4th-12th the Kidwind Challenge is a learning environment where the students create and test a functional creative wind turbine. The competition is judged by industry professionals in a supportive learning environment. Teams consist of 1 to 10 students with an educator as a coach. Educators or “coaches” don’t have to be formal teachers.  Club organizers, scout leaders, and even just moms and dads have organized groups of kids grades 3-12 to participate in KidWind Challenges across the country.  Teams will compete for prizes, and the top finishers in local challenges are invited to the National KidWind Challenge to be held in Anaheim, CA, in May 2017 at the American Wind Energy Association’s annual conference and trade show.
