Event description

Description

Wind turbines are a triumph of modern engineering, but how do they create energy? In this workshop, Adam Johnson, Adam Watkin and Mike Kennedy will introduce students to the challenges behind their design, and the mathematics and engineering used in their construction. Students will design, build and test their own turbines, aiming to generate clean energy in the most efficient way possible.

Please note: This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens and pencils.

This workshop is based on an Ri Engineering Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on summerschools@ri.ac.uk with any questions.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
