Episode 704: Blowin’ in the Wind

A cure for Motherboard might be hidden in the windiest spot in the Northern Frontier and the kids must figure out how to measure wind speed at different places to look for it.

For Real segment: Bianca makes a wind gauge to measure how hard the wind blows in different places so she can find a spot to fly a kite she gave to her niece for her birthday.

Learning Goals

To pick the best place to get power from the wind, your child can measure the speed of the wind in different places over time and choose the spot whose wind speeds are typically the fastest.

Topics: Measurement, Math & Weather: Measuring Wind Speed
