Carbon County wants to stop using as much electricity
(fossil fuels) and produce more wind energy. Carbon County and my team think this is a problem.
Wants: Under
$350,000 for each unit. Needs: Wind turbine must be safe for wildlife and the environment must be able to sustain strong winds and operate with snowfall. Prior Solutions: We thought that the blades should be thin yet able to sustain the strong winds. ©2011 Project Lead The Way, Inc.

Present Solution

Build models of the blade design from previous research.
Attach the blades to a model wind turbine.
Attach a 32g cup using a string on the back of the model wind turbine along with weighted washers each of the 3 trials.
Use a fan to create wind power for the model, this way, the durability of the blades are tested by the cup and the washers being lifted up by the turning blades­ the height of the cup from the ground will be measured each of the 3 trials­ all results will be recorded in journals. Results of the
