Wind for Schools: Supporting Teachers and Students in Distance Learning
May 20, 2020
Innovative programs—funded through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind Energy Technologies Office Wind for Schools project—are serving as an important resource as parents and educators struggle to find a balance in what has been dubbed the “new normal.”
“Wind for Schools is an initiative from DOE to help ensure that students are introduced to the wind energy industry in a constructive way,” said Ian Baring-Gould, technology deployment manager at NREL.
NREL is supporting distance learning for K-12 students through exciting, hands-on Wind for Schools programs such as KidWind and NEED (National Energy Education Development). Learn more.
