This is the Wind Energy Cycle by Paayal (4th grade) and Camille (5th grade) from Bay Meadows Elementary. Our art piece focuses on the story of the Wind Energy Cycle.
We get to see the effects of global warming on our planet everyday. From recycling, planting trees, composting, donating toys and clothes and preventing them from landing in landfills, we can come together and do what we can to save our planet. A big part of stopping the climate change is using green energy, renewable sources of energy.
We chose Wind Energy because using wind energy can help reduce global warming by reducing the use of fossil fuels. It is a source of renewable energy. It is one of the cleanest forms of energy – it does not contaminate or cause more pollution like fossil fuels. We won’t run out of wind energy. And it’s FREE!

Way to go, Paayal and Camille! I love how you both added art into STEM to make it STEAM. Art is very important in Engineering…especially in diagrams, science textbooks, and even in architect drawings! This is a very creative way to portray the wind energy cycle. So proud of you girls!
Very creative! Loved all the painting. A little bit of science a little bit of art – it’s a nice combination. Good job, Paayal and Camille!
Its so thoughtful of you guys to address a concern so relevant to the current crisis..
Glad to see you and your creative ways to portray this.. Kudos & Keep going 👏👏
Thank you Paayal and Camille for this clear cut and fool proof explanation and diagram. Wind is the cleanest and most abundant energy form that needs to be harvested more for the betterment of this planet.
Amazing work and you explained this with great detail. You make us so proud.
Great Job! You explained this with great detail. I am so proud of you.
This is awesome! Very KOALA-TY work! We are very proud of you. 🙂
What a creative and straight-forward way to explain wind energy and the usage cycle. I never thought of wind energy in this way! Great work!
Thank you so much Payal for your concern over global warming. Great minds always think differently. Good work Payal . Keep it up.
Using wind turbines to make use of wind energy is so smart! Your graphic design and drawings are very eye catching. Where are the best places to put wind turbines?
Thank you for your comment Ms. Susan and your question. For a wind turbine to work consistently and produce electricity, the location is important. The turbine needs to be tall because there is more wind at higher elevation. The best places for wind farms are in areas with steady winds like hill tops and open plains or even offshore. They need to be away from residential areas to avoid noise pollution. To protect birds, they should not be in an area where birds live or fly. – The Art-ineers
It is absolutely brilliant work by Payal and Camille. This is exactly what we need to save the planet and I’m very happy that the foresight of the young is in the right direction.
Great job!!! Keep it up!
Your diagram is such a clear representation of the wind energy cycle. All your fellow koalas are so proud of you!
Your art has inspired me to think differently about wind energy. Great job, Camille and Paayal!
Amazing and so creative Great Job Girls
Wind energy. Yes! We won’t run out and it is free! Excellent job. I like how you placed your illustrations in a literal cycle.
