### #Whistles with a Turbine, STEM Play
This project is a play on a previous whistle project. *What will happen if one adds a turbine, with a varying number of blades, to an existing whistle? * Well, it does not sound like a whistle anymore. It still makes some interesting sounds. All in all, it is an interesting design project to show STEM connections.
To make a whistle, one needs a body, a turbine, and a snap-on cover. A touch of lubricant to the inside of the turbine may improve spinning. A touch of superglue might be helpful for a permanent assembly.

STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.
When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
