Eighth graders in Ms. Barlev’s science class engineered and built windmills in their study of climate change. Using various materials to construct their windmills students made videos using breath, a hairdryer, a fan, or wind to show their machine’s movement and explained their designs and how they worked. In the climate change unit, students are studying different causes of climate change and researching and evaluating different solutions. Other options for the unit project include a research project on alternative energy, or green technology and  starting an advocacy organization.
