Workshop: Playing with Wind

Make an LED Pinwheel or a Mini Wind Turbine

Saturday, June 22, 10:00am-11:30am
hosted by Shelly Farnham

In this workshop you will create a pinwheel that powers an LED using the power of wind. This workshop is designed for all ages, with tasks ranging from drawing a design on a pinwheel template, to assembling the pinwheel and attaching an LED, to incorporating a motor that then lights the LED based on spinning in the wind. You will both learn about wind turbines in miniature form and create something cool.

Pinwheel supplies and/or mini turbine kits will be provided.
