BOCES to unveil wind turbine


LIBERTY, NY — Sullivan BOCES will unveil its first wind turbine on May 29 at 12:30 p.m. at the Rubin Pollack Education Center on Ferndale-Loomis Road.

During the event, the students will talk about their current projects and demonstrate how they will use the turbine to create energy for future renewable energy programs. The Wind Turbine Project is part of the STEM initiative created for the Pre-Tech Program. The STEM component offers a vast array of renewable energy practices, as well as alternative food production projects. Each project requires the student to engage in active problem-solving using higher-order thinking skills. Furthermore, the program challenges the student to build knowledge in viable energy and food production alternatives.

While you are there, you will also have the opportunity to pick up a SkillsUSA chicken barbeque dinner prepared by Culinary Arts students. To RSVP call 845/295-4037 by May 27.
