A unique competition that will allow students to develop an appreciation for the design and build process, a sense of accomplishment and earn bragging rights for their school is on the cards this year. St. John’s College (SJC) physics teacher Father Shazz Turnquest is introducing KidWind Challenge to The Bahamas. The competition, which is expected to be launched this month, will be open to students from all schools. The KidWind Challenge is a hands-on design competition that engages students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) through the lens of wind and solar energy. Student teams design and construct small wind turbines and solar structures that they test, and then meet with a panel of judges to present their design process and demonstrate their contextual knowledge of renewable energy. Teams also engage in a variety of instant challenges to gauge their on-the-spot teamwork problem-solving skills.
