Friday Funday

Catch the Wind (July 31, 2020)

Let me tell yah, the wind has been crazy nowadays and I’m curious how fast it is. An anemometer is a device used to measure the speed of the wind and today, why not make our own cup anemometer! They cups will “catch” the wind, causing the anemometer to spin. With a stopwatch, we would be able to time how long it spins, thus determining the speed of the wind. Anemometers are useful in determining the wind speed in different environments and situations. Let’s start!

Let us know how it went!
