Check out this really cool floating turbine that will be built in Alaska!

#TBT February 24th we visited Allen to build small-scale wind turbines with the kids - so cool to see them putting together everything they’ve learned!

Check out this great video that Javier Borrayo from Project SERES put together!

Part of our team has safely arrived in Antigua, Guatemala, where they will spend Spring Break doing research for our next project with Seres. Stay tuned for updates!

In other news, we also have a week long test in progress for our Allen Elementary turbine. So far, everything is working great!

We put together our entire turbine for the first time today - it generated 20 V!

Woven Wind has been hard at work! Above, see the blades team calibrating the fin and working on the hub, the electrical team working on their circuit and testing the battery, and the transmission team preparing to attach the transmission system to the platform. Specialized sub-teams made of engineers from multiple areas helps make sure everything gets done correctly.
