“The Maine Wind Blade Challenge provides Maine high school students with the opportunity to learn about Maine-Based STEM efforts. Students apply their understanding of science to design effective wind blades. At the same time they develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills and learn to work effectively in teams. It is a win/win proposition!” Anita Bernhart, Maine Department of Education
