Join New England Science & Sailing Foundation as you design a turbine powered by wind. Rhode Island is home to the first offshore wind farm, and now it is your turn to be the engineer! Just as sailors use wind to power their sailboats, you can use the wind to generate electricity and promote renewable energy. Build and test your own wind turbine while exploring how to maximize efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint.
Our mission at New England Science & Sailing Foundation (NESS) is to empower students with a love of learning through ocean-based experiential programs that serve schools, teachers, and families. NESS is the first and only program of its kind to be accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Our goal is to advance academic opportunities for K-12 students of all backgrounds through in the classroom, online, or on the water!
