Five junior students (Rory Crawford, Stella Gockenbach, Whitney McGinnes, Amira Veldman-Wilson, and Chloe Weber) participated in the Wind Win RI program throughout this school year, working towards certification status in a career pathway training system. With the help of mentor Dr. Sue Gibbons, they focused on meeting the specific academic requirements of the program in the areas of environmental science and engineering. They also participated in this year’s virtual Kid Wind High School Wind Turbine Challenge, by designing and testing wind turbines using a complex simulation program. The Block Island team’s final turbine was recognized with an honorable mention prize at the end of the competition.
