Warren Consolidated Schools
School Uses Wind Turbine in Math and Science Curriculum
Who: Warren Consolidated Schools
Where: Macomb County, Michigan
Why: Students from the Macomb Mathematics Science Technology Center and the Career Preparation Center in Warren, Michigan enjoyed working together to install a Windspire at a K-12 public school. The students were involved in all components of the installation, from design to implementation, including: digging the 2’ x 6’ hole for the foundation, pouring the concrete foundation, assembling the components of the Windspire, and learning how to connect it to the electric grid.
When: The Windspire was installed March, 2009
Video/Testimonial: “The Windspire wind turbine has really enlightened and opened up the minds of our students and given them an opportunity to better understand the challenge that wind energy has in solving our reliance on fossil fuels,” said David Walsh, Administrative Consultant for Special Programs for Warren Consolidated Schools and the lead administrator for renewable energy programs across the school district. “This program has provided an outstanding opportunity for our students to do real research on real environmental issues.”
