Wind Can Do Work Activity

Mock Wind Turbine Town Hall – Use the mock virtual town hall as a great stand-in for holding an in-class debate, or use it as a model for your own. Ask students to identify who they agree and disagree with, and why! The video was originally designed to couple well with “Wind Turbine Point of View”, found in NEED’s Wind for Schools guide. The activity and video are a great introductory lesson for students to research wind energy.

Offshore Energy – Learn about offshore energy, offshore wind and floating technologies and career paths, and maritime transportation with our playlist of guest speakers from the 9/15/20 NOIA offshore energy workshop. Broken into five segmented videos by guest speaker.
