A group of Miami Valley students recently won first place in a world-wide creative innovation competition called Destination Imagination. The kids from Jane Chance Elementary school show our Hilary Zalla their winning project in this week's Cool Schools.
At first look, it appears to be just a big art project. With the bells and whistles you would expect from 4th and 5th graders.
But, go behind the big contraption, and you have a whole technical power system.
So what is it? Well, it's kinetic art! And, the students designed and built it all by themselves for the Destination Imagination competition this year. They concentrated on showcasing wind energy through the four seasons.
And they showed me how it all works...the moving parts are powered by wind created through electricity.
They competed against 65 teams from around the world at the Destination Imagination competition in Knoxville this year and won first place. They say it has really taught them problem solving and team building.
