Math of Wind Turbines!

Congratulations to Ann Saucier for building an Algebra unit around wind turbine technology at Lokelani Intermediate on Maui.  Ms. Saucier was able to engage her classes in trying to maximize output voltage through improvments in the blade designs of their turbines.  By using the IEI Lending Library, she had enough wind turbines to educate and involve teams of students.  It's wonderful to hear stories like these from our inspiring Hawaii teachers.
