Fourth-graders at Jones-Farrar Magnet School got up close and personal with how wind turbines can have a global impact on the earth during a demonstration held Thursday, May 22, 2014 at the school in Freeport.

Dave Vrtol, wind turbine technician instructor at Highland, said showing off the wind turbine to the students was an exciting opportunity to be part of a "teachable moment." Not only did Vrtol demonstrate how the wind turbines operate, but each student was able to see how the control panel operated the turbine.

Dave Vrtol, HCC wind turbine instructor, speaks to Jones-Farrar Magnet School students about wind technology.


Fourth-grade teacher Brad Groenewold said, "One of our units of inquiry was of sharing the planet, and it's great to use Highland's resources to teach the students about wind technology. One of the things we teach our students is about global impact. Wind turbines are a part of that impact."
