WALT: Design and make a wind turbine using household materials and objects

Steps to Success:

  • I can design a product that fits the brief
  • I can make my product and think carefully about my choices of materials
  • I can test and evaluate my product to improve it further


In this session, you will definitely be practising your fantastic growth mindset!

Please go through the lesson PowerPoint before designing and creating your own, simple wind turbine. There is a design suggestion below if you need a little extra help.

Once you have finished making your wind turbine, please test it and consider ways you could improve your design.

It would be great to have videos and photos of your wind turbine to share on our class webpage. However, if you wish to show me your design and creation in another way, that will be wonderful too!
