They went to San Antonio this week and are coming home with the national trophy.  

The Chaloner Middle School WindBreaker team has won the National KidWind Challenge Middle School Division.  

The students had to build an actual wind turbine that generates electricity.  

“They did amazing. Their solar challenge, hydro challenge, and presentation is really what helped them win the competition,” said AIG Coordinator Jenny Shives. “They have worked so hard and we are incredibly proud of them.” 

The students have been meeting after school, during lunch, and other times to build a wind turbine that would generate enough energy to power a lightbulb using some basic household items.

Last month they presented their wind turbine prototype at The Center of Energy Education in Roanoke Rapids as part of the KidWind Renewable Energy Challenge.  

Dominion Energy, which plans to build some turbines off the Virginia coast is partially funding the challenges as a way to help prepare students for jobs in the industry.
