How do they work? Windmills and pinwheels (Bright Minds Years 3-4)
While designs have changed, the basic idea of a windmill has basically stayed the same over many years. During this hands-on workshop students will tinker, design and construct simple pin-wheel windmills to test the power generated by different designs.
Location: Queensland Academies, Science, Mathematics and Technology Campus (78 Bywong Street, Toowong)
Date: Wednesday, 9 August, 2017
