Bath County Team Takes First Place In KidWind Challenge Event

 
Chicago, IL (May 10, 201) - The Redwood Express team from Bath County High School won first place in the KidWind Challenge at the AWEA Windpower 2018 conference here held May 8-10, 2018.

Windpower is the premier wind energy conference and showcases many of the major wind companies and wind developers. As participants at this event, students and their coaches will get to attend the conference free and will be able to interact with industry professionals.

The goal of the National KidWind Challenge is to provide a venue for the top-scoring participants of local KidWind Challenge Events and the REcharge Labs Wind Turbine Online challenge winners to compete in one location.

At the National KidWind Challenge, teams from all over the world will convene to compete for National recognition. The competition involves tunnel testing, judging by engineering staff, instant competitions, and student presentations.

Top performers at this event win a share of cash and prizes, but the real reward for the students and coaches is the connections they make with other students and the wind industry.

The Valley Wind Turbinators from the Valley Elementary School in Bath County won fourth place.
