The Danish Wind Industry Association has a good website for students to explore and learn about wind energy. A Crash Course in Wind Energy gives students the opportunity to see how wind energy is harnessed. In the course students will see how a wind turbine is built, learn what the parts of a wind power system do, and see a wind turbine simulation. Overall, it is a fairly simple site, but could be an effective demonstration in some science classes. The site functions best in IE, but can also be used in Firefox.
Applications for Education
A Crash Course in Wind Energy is a simple, but effective demonstration of how wind energy is harnessed. This site could be used as the introduction to a classroom project in which students build model wind turbines.
