Product Description
Spring STEM Challenge: Build a Windmill

This STEM lesson is designed to get students thinking creatively about the world around them. Whether you are talking about the winds that come in springtime in March, clean energy sources for Earth Day, or just about places around the world, this STEM lesson is just what you need.

This easy STEM activity asks students to work cooperatively with a team or work on their own, to design and test a windmill. The real world connection, linking this STEM challenge to the windmills of Zaanse Schans in The Netherlands, gives the task a real world application.
