What is the KidWind Challenge?

The KidWind Challenge is a hands-on design competition that engages students in STEM through the lens of wind energy. Student teams design and construct small wind turbines that they test, and then virtually present their design process and demonstrate their conceptual knowledge on renewable energy.

The KidWind Challenge is a team effort by teachers, students, engineers, and practitioners, all working to make wind energy education and other renewable energy education accessible in classrooms around the world

Who Can Participate?

Any group of students in 4th-12th grade is eligible to enter a Team in the Arizona KidWind Challenge. Teams can include students from public and private schools, home schoolers, after school clubs, Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, etc. As long as you have an adult coach, you can participate! Each Team can have 2-5 students, and the Team must have an adult mentor. The mentor will be responsible for registering the team for the competition and managing the team’s progress.
