Engineering class makes turbines

Engineering teacher John Banister-Marx teaches students how to make turbines in order to create the highest amount of energy possible. Every pair of students created their own turbine with foam boards and went through a series of trial runs to find the best angle for all blade.

Students Dylan Wilson and Emily Andrews exchange turbines. Each blade on the turbine helps it function better. Credit: Cole Bourbon for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online

Wilson’s trial goes well as the turbine spins quickly and the blades stay stationary on the axis. With each trial run, students needed to add a blade onto the axis in order to get different results. Clara Tuttle for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
