Wind Blade Challenge

The Maine Wind Blade Challenge is in it’s 9th year! We are excited to once again be holding the challenge at the University of Maine, Orono, Advanced Structures and Composites Center on May 19, 2017.

Registration is OPEN!

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 course work, students design, infuse, manufacture and test blades, going up against other students from around the state 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 2016 participants! Every year, competitors put their all into innovative, exceptionally engineered designs. Thanks to all for an exciting contest! Watch our video to see what Wind Blade Challenge is really like…
