Availability of Wind Energy Resources for Schools   

Please visit the North Carolina Wind Energy website for more information:

Attend a wind workshop and you can get a class set of Kid Wind models; three-four teachers are needed per session. For more information please contact Eric Burgoyne.

The Wind for Schools program, sponsored by the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory, aims to install small scale wind turbines for educational use at schools throughout North Carolina. The program encourages the incorporation of renewable energy education into the K-12 science curriculum. Appalachian State installed four turbines in 2011 at schools in the mountains including Alleghany High, Avery High, Watauga High, & North Wilkes Middle.
