Media Previews Maine Wind Blade Challenge

AltEnergyMag and North American Windpower previewed the sixth annual Maine Wind Blade Challenge to be held May 2 at the University of Maine. Developed by Maine Composites Alliance, in partnership with the Maine Ocean & Wind Industry Initiative, the contest matches high school teams with Maine-based advanced composites manufacturers to research, design and manufacture model wind blades. In addition to giving presentations, 38 high school teams from all around Maine will compete to generate the most energy over two minutes. The Maine Wind Blade Challenge was designed to inspire student exploration of alternative energy and advanced materials by participating in a hands-on STEM application.
