STEM Learning Activity: STELR Wind Energy Program
The STELR Wind Energy program is a STEM education program is designed to engage students in learning about energy and sustainability. It uses the theme of renewable energy to harness students’ interest in and concern about climate change and rising energy costs. The inquiry-based and hands-on learning program engages and challenges both students and teachers.
The Wind Energy resource includes class sets of purpose-designed and built equipment as well as curriculum materials available in the resources section below. The STELR Wind Energy module was developed from the broader STELR Renewable Energy module. For the iSTEM Fundamentals Module it is recommended that you only undertake a small number of the experiments.
This unit requires the school to purchase the STELR Wind Energy Kit.
The STELR Wind Energy Equipment class sets include all the equipment required for students to undertake investigations into energy transfers and transformations and the generation of electricity using wind turbines.
