2014 Agriscience – Wind Power Labs

SCHS Agriscience students conduct a wind power lab collecting data on generation of voltage and amperage and the calculation of electrical power in watts. Variables under consideration are blade type, blade length, and blade pitch in determining the wind blade design that produces the highest amount of power.

Renewable Energy – Our Future

Life According to Bill Gates

Hey! It’s back to school time! Here is some constructive advice from Mr. Bill Gates. Enjoy!

Bill Gates’ Rules of Life

Wind Energy Lab

Students in Agriscience class construct wind towers testing variables such as blade material, blade length, and number of blades and their effect on voltage output. Also with a light being used as a load on the circuit we can measure amperage along with voltage and calculate power in watts.


Bridge Design Lab

Introduction to the Agriculture Industry students measure and design bridges to withstand the highest amount of load before breaking as part of a unit on Loads, Loading, and the Design of Free Span Structures in Agriculture Engineering.

Hydraulic Syringe Robot Lab

Introduction to Agriculture Industry students work on their ideas for the Syringe Hydraulic Robot Lab. Students will calculate work, power, and horsepower during the experiment.
