Wind Tunnel Testing

Wind Tunnel Testing

In this activity, learners explore how wind tunnels provide feedback to engineers about the performance and durability of products such as planes, cars, and buildings. Learners work in teams to build their own model of a car, using simple materials, and test their designs in a classroom wind tunnel set up.
