National KidWind Award Recieved By Centreville Student

Cardinal Ridge Elementary School student Pranamya Jindal won first place in the elementary-school division under the team name Nature Wings. This was the Centreville resident’s first time participating in the renewable energy competition. The 2021 National KidWind Challenge was hosted virtually from June 8-10 on Zoom. The competition is a project where students test their knowledge of renewable energy.

Pranamya Jindal created a wind turbine in the Nature Wings team
According to The Connection Newspapers, "KidWind was originally introduced to Jindal through her mother who later on acted as her coach. “My mom was online one day and she found out about it and shared it with me,” Jindal said. As a coach, Richa Jindal focused on guiding her daughter instead of directly teaching her. “I learned the importance of letting kids learn independently while being provided with material, a platform to actually make a difference to real-world problems,” Richa Jindal said. During her preparation, she researched the components of wind energy and created various turbine blades." As per The Connection Newspapers, "Moving forward, Jindal plans to continue learning about renewable energy and participate in the 2022 KidWing Competition. “During the summer I'm going to research a little more and learn more about the competition so that next year I can perform even better. Maybe I’ll even try doing a solar project,” Jindal said. The mother-daughter team was especially thankful for the guidance they received and the team at KidWind for hosting the event. “We want to thank Ms. Remy and Ms. Grace from CASE. We also cannot express enough how much we appreciate all the support and the opportunities provided to us by KidWind,” Jindal said."
