Cooler Weather Ahead

Winter is coming and cooler days are here. Please make sure your child has appropriate outerwear for recess. Another way to warm up on these cooler mornings would be to eat school breakfast! Every day there is a dish that is hot—eggs, for example, or breakfast pizza, or our new baked oatmeal. We also offer cold cereal if you would like that instead.

Harnessing the Wind

North Winneshiek 5th and 6th graders read the book, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, by William Kwamkwambe. It's the story of a poor African boy who uses library books to teach himself about electricity and generators so that the can build himself a wind turbine using materials from a junk pile.

North Winners learned about wind, air pressure, motors and generators. After testing the amount of voltage produced by various pre-made model turbine blades, students designed their own using Tinkercad and then printed a prototype using our new Makerbot 3D printer.
