Wind for Schools

The Kansas Energy Program provides wind and solar presentations to K-12 programs and can provide access to wind and solar energy curricula and equipment. We also assist the National Renewable Energy Library with the Kansas Wind Application Center, which provides technical assistance to schools that have or want to install wind turbines. Although the program does not provide funding for wind turbine installations, it does assist in troubleshooting communications and maintenance issues on turbines that have already been installed. 

One of the major Wind for Schools activities is the annual KidWind Challenge. The KidWind competition is an event developed to allow middle-school and high-school students to explore the power of wind by building and testing their own wind turbines. For more information, visit our KidWind page.
