This curriculum was developed by The NEED Project in partnership with The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation for teachers in Virginia. The activities and information introduce students to wind, wind generation, and offshore wind technologies, as well as the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind Project.
While some of the text and activities are focused on the Virginia coastline, the activities and information are great for students all over the country and beyond to learn more about offshore wind in the U.S. Contact NEED for further information on supplies.
