Can you make a paper windmill and learn about the wind?

What is wind? Wind is the movement of air across the surface of the Earth driven by energy from the sun. It can range from a light breeze to a dangerous hurricane or tornado. Wow!

Wind is an example of a renewable energy source. This is because it can be used again and again. Have a go at making a paper windmill and take it outside. What happens when the wind blows? Does your windmill spin around? This is how wind turbines generate power!

So what is Active Science?

Get up. Get moving. Have fun with science! We've got everything you need  - resources, outcomes and delivery instructions. Increase or decrease the challenge level to suit all ages. Have fun with STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and get active.
