The team, which includes several CEE students, is focused on wind energy and sustainability. Prior to the project with A2STEAM, the team designed and implemented a wind turbine for the Allen Elementary 5th grade class to power lights in their classroom. This project was features in the 2014 CEE News Magazine.

The overall Woven Wind mission is to collaborate with diverse communities to design, build, test and implement wind powered technology utilizing both the cultural characteristics of their customers and the technical capabilities of community environments. Through their work, they aim to serve society by developing sustainable, safe and functional devices that act as educational tools to both the team and the end users.

CEE team members include Project Leader David Naidoff, Case Kittel, Kevin Liberman and Maria Redoutey.

Their next project will take place at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum. Visit their Facebook page for updates.
