Summary
As the United States moves toward a vision of greatly expanded wind energy use, the rapidly growing wind industry faces two challenges: a critical need for skilled workers trained in wind energy technology and the need to address local concerns caused by a lack of understanding of the true issues and real impacts of wind energy development. The U.S. Department of Energy's Wind for Schools program aims to address these two critical issues. The Wind for Schools program works to engage local citizens in a wind energy discussion while developing a knowledge base for wind energy within schools. The project's three primary goals are to (1) engage rural elementary and secondary school teachers and students in wind energy education, (2) equip college students in wind energy applications while starting a nucleus for expanded programs to provide the growing wind industry with an interested and equipped workforce, and (3) introduce wind energy on a small scale to communities, starting a discussion of the benefits and issues in using wind energy to meet the needs of the nation's and the world's energy future. This paper provides an overview of the project elements, including a description of host and collegiate school curricula developed for wind energy and the status of the current projects. The paper also provides focused information regarding how schools, regions, or countries can become involved or implement similar projects to expand the social acceptance and understanding of wind energy
