The Future of
Hello again this is Josh, Jon, and Luke! It has been very fun working on this project but we are excited to have successfully finished our project. We had an event called the forum where people came to ask us questions about our project and it went great. We knew our project well and had done extensive research to make sure our solution could be implemented. We will be making a video of our project as a final part. We hope you have learned something with us while we have worked to create a more efficient and less space consuming choice of alternative energy
For the last time, this is Jon, Josh, and Luke. we have finished our project and prove that a solar windmill would double the efficiency of alternate energy while taking the same amount of space. now that this blog is done, spread the world! let people know that alternate energy isn't just limited by space! thank you for reading this blog.
We're back again. It's Josh, Jon and Luke! Our progress this week was slowed down due to misplacing one of the key parts of our windmill. We have ordered a replacement part, and once we get it, we will be back up to full speed. We have also ordered our solar panels. Our plan for next week is to run the following three tests to see how much energy:
1) Just the blades on the windmill produce
2) The solar panels attached on the blades produce
3) The solar panels directly below the windmill produce
Whichever test works the best will be the windmill we present at the forum. We hope you come back next week to see what progress we have made!
Hello again this is Jon, Josh, and Luke! After finding a narrow problem and solution, we have have started our experiments. On friday, the three of us spent class time testing our model windmill to see how much energy it produces. The model windmill is only about 2 feet tall so we were pleasantly surprised at the results. Our model windmill generated upon to 5 volts of electricity! This week we will add the solar panels to the windmill and find out how it of a difference the solar panels will make. We are thinking if our model is scaled into a much larger size, it will generate way more energy than normal solar panels, or windmills. Come back to read next week's blog post to stay updated on our project!
Hello, this is Jon, Josh, and Luke! We are starting a project in which we will prototype a solar panel bladed windmill, and do experiments to see whether or not they can be attached to buildings. If we succeed, we will be able to double the efficiency of wind farms and slow climate change! Our plan is to get in contact with Dr. Joe King and work with him to design a version of his solar windmill that could be used on the side of apartments in busy areas! We hope that you continue to read our adventures into the world of alternative energy!
