If you’d like to try coding your Wind Turbine without following a tutorial, you can code openly in the traditional Makecode workspace by clicking the link below.

Here’s a brief description to help you on your open coding journey:

Objective: Code the dial component to turn the wind turbine in the same direction as the dial is being turned. Use the dial’s ‘button’ function to stop the wind turbine.

Hints: Use the On Dial Turn input to change the speed of wind turbine’s motor. Use the ‘on touch’ button to stop the motor when it is pushed down.
