Students at New Haven’s Endeavour Middle School are being blown away by the school’s new alternative energy curriculum.
The school’s new 60-foot tall wind turbine … is also being blown away but in a bit more literal way.
The wind turbine was installed at the school to help the students get hands-on with the wind energy program. The wind energy curriculum is focused for the middle school while the elementary focuses on solar power and the high school on bio fuels.
“We believe the future is alternative energy,” New Haven Superintendent Dr. Keith Wunderlich said. “We want our students to be prepared with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in that future. By the time a student graduates from New Haven, they will have had hands on experience with solar power, wind power and bio fuels.”
