Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

Our team choose this challange because we wanted to become more eco friendly . Inflation costs have caused living sustainably a lot more difficult especially during the times of covid-19. Our aim of our project is to find a more sustainable and efficient way of gathering wind energy and converting into electricity.

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

From our research we found that wind energy is a good way to reuse and induce eco friendly energy to the world . We have decided to come up with a way to gather wind energy moreefficiently.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Our hero is Elon Musk . He is a business magnate and investor also he is the founder, CEO and chief engineer of SpaceX along with angel investor. To add to his long script of achievements he is a CEO and product architect of Tesla and last but not least an owner and CEO of Twitter Elon musk has invented electric cars that aim to be more eco friendly for our environment

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

There is not a lot we would improve as he is a very passionate and also persistent to keep going even when he fails he continues to try and achieve his goals but if we had to chose one thing we would choose is that he needs to get expert input more then he does now as he has made several mistakes that have cost a lot because he did not get extra input

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

One solution we would consider for our hero is to have many people check his work throughout the process of him creating an invention to double check His work with his colleagues to ease the risk of errors and money loss throughout his company

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.

If you have any feedback what would it be and any suggestions to help or change any information
