Pennsylvania Wind for Schools
The Wind for Schools' (WfS) primary objective is to engage rural Americans in wind-related projects. By facilitating installation of small wind turbines at rural K-12 schools, the WfS program provides a knowledge base for alternative energy.
Penn State students and faculty assist in site assessment, design, and installation of the wind systems and act as consultants for the schools. CSATS, along with Wind Senators Leah Bug and Dina Taucher, coordinates and provides teacher professional development, assisting teachers with the implementation of the hands-on wind curricula, bringing wind energy education into the classroom through interactive wind-related activities.
