EWEB Kidwind Challenge
The 3rd annual Bethel Kidwind Challenge sponsored by EWEB was held here at Meadow View today, April 8th, from 10-2 p.m.
Students from Meadow View, Willamette, Kalapuya, Shasta, Prairie Mountain, Cascade, and Gateways High School in Springfield competed with a wind turbine they made in class. Students learned about renewable energy, blade design, blade variables and gear ratios among other things. Teams tested their turbine in a wind tunnel and were interviewed by U of O students regarding their knowledge of the subject area. Scores were computed and the winners were awarded prizes. This event was made possible by EWEB grant funds, dedicated teachers and many volunteers! Folks who came to observe were blown away!
Over spring break, 3rd grade students had the option to create a container that would protect an egg from breaking when dropped from the top of a tall ladder. Students were SUPER creative! Containers ranged from jars of peanut butter, to cans of hay and cotton, to buckets of jello! Last week, all third grade students gathered together outside to test each container as the containers were dropped from the top of a ladder. Our experiments were extremely successful with only a couple of the eggs breaking!
3rd grade teachers discussed with students how this is an important feature of eggs, since eggs usually hold some form of life inside of them that may be sat on for many months by a mother or buried in some sort of nest. To protect the life inside of them, they need to be tough! To take this one step further, students also stood on two dozen eggs to see if they would break under their body weight. Most of the eggs survived when the weight was dispersed evenly over the eggs, to students’ amazement!!! Other experiments included a jar of vinegar, what happens when an egg is placed one in a cup of water and one in a cup of salt water with lots of surprising results.
