Wind Blade Challenge

The 8th Annual Maine Wind Blade Challenge was a success! 30 teams joined us at the University of Maine, Advanced Structures and Composites Center where the competition was held for the first time. We thank our sponsors, teachers, the staff at the University of Maine, and all volunteers who made this day possible. Until next year!

Maine high school teams compete each year to create an energy-producing set of wind blades in the annual Wind Blade Challenge. Produced through hands-on science and engineering school course work, students design, infuse, manufacture and test blades, going up against competitors during the one-day challenge. Educators and manufacturers collaborate on this successful and growing STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) challenge, hosted by UMaine each year, raising career aspirations for students and developing a workforce for Maine’s growing composites industry. Congratulations to all 2015 participants! Every year, competitors put their all into innovative, exceptionally engineered designs. Thanks to all for an exciting contest!
