Wind for Schools Program
Designed specifically for educational institutions, Northern Power Systems' Wind for Schools Program offers a technologically advanced wind turbine that delivers significant energy savings for your school while educating tomorrow's leaders about green technology. By offering an educational tool set for your school, we bring the lessons of the Northern Power 100 right into the classroom and to your entire community. Our web based tools allow your school to be a model for the community by involving parents, students and residents in your wind turbine project by showcasing the positive impacts of your turbine in a sleek and engaging manner.
The Wind for Schools Program includes:
- StudentView, our web-based interface that includes live turbine data, trending and historical data that can be incorporated into math and science lesson plans. Northern Power is currently developing an enhanced and interactive version of StudentView for release in Summer 2010.
- PublicView, a sophisticated public access website that acts as a window into your school's turbine's performance. It calculates in real time a series of relevant information that is communicated in an engaging website that can be customized with your school's logo, information and photos.
- Wind Curriculum Resources: Northern Power is actively engaged with wind energy associations around the globe and therefore, has the best line of sight on educational resources and school curriculums that teach students of varying ages about wind power.
