The CWRU Innovation Summit is October 26-28, and to celebrate innovation, Weatherhead is featuring a recent Sears think[box] project each week. This week's edition: a vertical axis wind turbine.
Sears think[box] spotlight
You can see this vertical axis wind turbine in action at the Case Western Reserve University Squire Valleevue Farm where it powers lighting and data acquisition systems that allow oyster mushrooms to be grown year-round. Cost, location, and performance were carefully considered in the design process to reduce dependence on grid-fed, non-renewable energy during operation. The Bingham Shop and staff aided in the machining and fabrication of the finished product.
think[box] and CWRU's Innovation Summit
The Larry Sears and Sally Zlotnick Sears think[box] at the Richey Mixon building is Case Western Reserve University's center for innovation. It provides a space for anyone - especially students, faculty, and alumni - to tinker and creatively invent.
