Fourth Graders Excel at Wind Turbine Competition

Forest Park Elementary School students participated in a wind turbine competition in April sponsored by General Electric Co. and Kid Wind.

The students, Chelsea, Leanna, Keira, Ariel, and Tyler P, each presented their design ideas to a panel of judges, including GE Renewables CEO Anne McEntee, and tested the performance of their turbine design in a wind tunnel.

Of the 22 middle school teams, the three came in 12th (Chelsea, Leanna, Keira), 13th (Tyler P.), and 17th (Ariel) place. Very respectable considering they were the only fourth grade students competing against teams of students from up to 8th grade.
