Wind Turbine Workshop sparks career search for OYA students
A Wind Turbine workshop for area teachers held in Portland earlier this summer made a big impression on Frank Martin, an Education Coordinator at Oregon Youth Authority. The workshop, sponsored by BEF, the Energy Trust of Oregon and KidWind, showed teachers how to teach about wind energy and gave them the tools needed to reach their students. Martin's students at OYA have since learned about the power of wind and a host of potential careers in the industry. The workshop made such an impression, that it was highlighted in OYA's September newsletter - Inside OYA.
