L.P. Coyotes

About Our Team

Our team is from Thermal, California, United States. We are from Las Palmitas Elementary School, and are in the K-4 age category.

Our team consists of four 4th grade girls who love science. We have been working really hard creating different gear systems for our wind turbine. We started with an 8 to 1 ratio and are now working with a 64 to 1 ratio. Everyone on the team is contributing in one way or another to make it even better for the regional competition coming up in a few weeks.
