Description: Watch teams of high school students from across the country compete in an all-day design challenge: build wind turbines powerful enough to hoist garbage cans 40 feet to the Museum’s ceiling! Learn about inventions through hands-on activities with educators from the Museum and Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. The day culminates in a “big bang” as all 25 cans are released in one loud finale.
