Lanier’s SPINNERS team placed 1st in the Regional KidWind Challenge 2018 competition held at Udvar-Hazy Museum on Saturday, March 16. This is the 5th consecutive year that Lanier MS has stood first in this competition. With this win the team qualifies for the National KidWind competition which will take place at the WINDPOWER energy conference in May in Chicago. Teams from all over the world will compete for National recognition. The competition involves wind tunnel testing, judging by engineering staff, instant competitions and student presentations. Top performers may win a share of cash and prizes, but the real reward for the students and coaches is the connections they make with other students and the wind industry.
