Wind Energy Remote Learning

STELR has produced remote learning videos and student workbooks for schools closed down due to COVID-19.

STELR Wind Remote Learning Materials

The videos present three wind energy investigations.
Students see the investigations being performed.

Test 1: Angle of Blades Investigation

What angle for the blades on a wind turbine hub produces the biggest voltage?

Test 2: Blade Length Investigation

Which blade length, of the three lengths supplied, delivers the biggest voltage for the STELR wind turbine generator?

Test 3: Number of Blades Investigation

What effect does the number of blades have on the voltage produced by the STELR wind turbine generator?

This video shows how you can design turbine blades with CAD.


The workbook includes the data from the investigations. Students draw graphs, analyse the results and draw conclusions.
