Nothing is more satisfying than seeing students learn by trial and error. I wasn't sure at first if letting my students try to figure out how the anemometer would work was a good idea, since they had to persevere in order to have a working anemometer, however, I was not disappointed. Just as engineers, time and time again they revised their design until they got it to work.
