Creating an anemometer as a team was a helpful learning experience. During the whole process I tried to keep the steps to solving complex problems in mind. At the first meeting with my group, only three of the four of us were there. We had not yet gotten in contact with our fourth partner, as he attended the wrong lecture and was not responding to our messages to him.

We were all quite respectful of each other’s ideas and gave each of them a chance. We had some

Our first attempt at testing our anemometer had rather disappointing results. For the next while we each took turns trying to figure out how to make it produce a larger voltage. Two of our team members had to leave for class so the last two of us continued working and altering our design. We still had not gotten to a voltage that we were happy with but we were running out of time so we took a video of what we had. My partner then suggested that we try to turn our anemometer vertical.
