The Wind for Schools Program, a Wind Powering America Project raises awareness in rural America about the benefits of wind energy while simultaneously developing a wind energy knowledge base in future leaders of our communities, states, and nation.
A wind turbine located at a school provides students and teachers with a physical example of how communities can take part in providing for the economic and environmental security of the nation while allowing exciting, hands-on educational opportunities. The Wind for Schools Project approach is to install small wind turbines at rural schools, initially replicating the Colorado pilot process in five Great Plains states (CO, ID, KS, MT, NE).
The Program has released the some new resources for teachers, administrators, students, parents, and communities interested in exploring wind power for their schools:
