High School Students Working Toward a Career in Wind

April 14, 2018

NBC News and The Hechinger Report are collaborating on a series examining how schools can prepare students for wind energy jobs in the future. The third installment in the series describes how a high school in Texas is launching what might be the nation’s first wind turbine technician program for high school students. Students at Bruni High School will soon be able to sign up for courses that they can apply toward an associate degree at nearby Texas State Technical College. The students can also earn a certificate through the classes. Officials hope the turbine technician program will allow high schools students to have access to local employment opportunities.
