Hope Street Students Win Wind Turbine Competition, Again
On Friday April 20, 2012, Hope Street Academy Teachers Scott Schwarz and Thomas Fulbright took 8 students (4 teams) to K-State University to compete in their Wind Turbine competition. Teams from all over the State brought in model wind turbines; the goal was for the turbines to generate electricity. Teams with the highest amount of electricity were awarded winners. Hope Street took 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th among the wind turbines. You could say they "blew away" the competition and swept the contest. Hope Street students also took 1st place in the poster contest which explained the design of the turbine. This is the second year Hope Street has competed. Last year with only one team Hope Street took 1st place in the wind turbines and 1st place in the poster contest. We congratulate the following students on their performance.
