Team of Legends
About Our Team
Our team is from Wilbraham, Massachusetts, United States. We are from Wilbraham and Monson Academy, and are in the 9-12 age category.
We are a team formed from a freshman STEM class. Our design ended up performing the best in class so we decided to enter it into the monthly contest.
Was a REcharge Labs MacGyver Windmills kit used for this project? No
What was the biggest challenge in trying to get your windmill to work properly? At first, we couldn't find any sticks for axle. When we finally find one, it is a little too thin to hold weight. However, we still used that stick as an axle and made it to work.
