STEM Connection

Talking about sustainable energy sources is one thing...looking up 250 feet into a real-life wind turbine is a whole other experience.  It's just cool!  Did you know that the turbines are adjusted during migration season so they don't interfere with migrating birds and bats. (Yes, bats!)  So as you're standing under this mammoth piece of technology that makes the world better...you might ask the kids a few wind-related question.  See the related links section below for some thought starters.  And also...maybe bring a kite!

Ideas, Notes, & Tips

The turbine is super cool - and enormous!  But let's face it...kids get bored easily.  So, when you're done checking out the turbine (and if you don't have a kite to go fly at the beach), keep going on down Pilottown Road, and you'll run into the Lewes public boat launch.  It's always fund the watch the boats come and go.
