The purpose of this study was to determine
whether our neighborhood park, Nose Hill, was a feasible area in which
to install wind turbines on. This was an important project because the
world is quickly running out energy resources and every year, there
are more greenhouse gasses emissions released into the atmosphere. As
a citizen, it is my responsibility to find solutions to help our
Thus, by doing this project, I hope to create awareness and to
encourage the implementation of more wind energy systems. I also
worked with four other classmates, Lisa, Helena, Byron, and Kate. As a
group, we studied the biological impact, design studies, and the
physics of wind turbines.
My classmates and I go to Nose Hill very often to ride our bikes
or take walks. I especially like to go there to walk my dog. Anyhow,
we've noticed that this park is always very windy and we began to
wonder if we could use this wind power to our advantage. We began this
project as a school project and later we entered it in science fair.
Now, I have entered this in the virtual science fair to further
promote our ideas across the web.
