Fifth grade explores wind energy

Fifth graders at Eshleman had the opportunity to build their own wind turbines.  This week, they connected the shaft and tested the shape of their blades in 21st Century Skills class with Mr. Crowther.  Representative Ryan Aument stopped by to check out the blade designs and to see how students work together to learn about technology while using many of the skills they learn in core subjects like science and math.
