Recent grad builds wind tunnel
The completed tunnel is nine and a half feet long, and uses a fan to generate a 60 mph airspeed through the tunnel. To read the forces produced by the tunnel, a device called a balance had to be designed and built. The balance reads four forces: lift, roll, drag and yaw.  The balance includes delicate circuitry that can detect the slightest changes in force and send those readings to an instrument panel to be recorded.
 
After all of his hard work, Landon has generously donated the wind tunnel to the district to be used by future WPHS students.  Thank you, Landon!
