About the Wind is Power competition:
This competition is for students that want to create and show how the wind can be harnessed for power.  This will be a practical challenge focusing on renewable energy. Pupils will design and build a simple wind powered machine that will glide across the sand in a timed race. The STEM competition also gives students a chance to shine in the areas of engineering they find most enjoyable.
This generation of students we're dealing with now, they're very much in tune with environmental issues and ecological issues.” Said Teri Bayus, Event Coordinator for the Soar Into Morro Bay Kite Festival, “It helps with problem-solving skills and what you can do in a real-life scenario."
Students will compete in 3 categories, primary 1-5 grade, secondary 6-9, and High 10-12.   Accolades will be scholarships and prizes.

Mission of Organization:

The Soar Into Morro Bay Kite Festival is a annual community event focused on family and the art of kite flying. 

Our goal is to bring all individuals, families, and all generations together in a safe,  relaxing and fun environment, to learn and participate in the art of kite flying, Morro Bay style. Our breathtaking surroundings and windy location is perfect for this type of gathering on the central coast. 

Our hope when attending this high flying event, is that kids of all ages will not be distracted by technology for a moment and able to enjoy kite flying festivities, nature, the ocean. Perhaps, even Grandma and Grandpa can take a turn to fly a kite and enjoy some good old fashioned fun over the weekend...
