The Engineering Club. 17 January 2020. LCA parent Jessica Houston challenges willing students to find the efficient way to operate a wind turbine, in this case, a windmill. The turbine’s rotation winds a string on a narrow shaft in order to lift a weight, here, a pair of scissors. A question is, How does the […]
