More than 50 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 2014 participants! Every year, competitors put their all into innovative, exceptionally engineered designs, and this year’s winners certainly lived up to that tradition. Thanks to all for an exciting contest!
