Wind Turbines: What, Why, How?

There was so much to do at this Royal Academy of Engineering funded event. We teamed up with the University of Kent, wind farm operators Vattenfall and London Array, and a group of fantastic engineers volunteering with the STEM Ambassador Programme to offer a whole building full of activities. After learning how electricity is generated, participants were helped to design and build their own turbines. They could also feel what it was like to visit an offshore wind farm using virtual reality equipment and learn about routes into engineering or jobs in renewable energy . Cliffs Cafe served up a mean coffee too.
