Dec. 18, 2012

Now in its second year, the Illinois Wind for Schools (ILWFS) program is accepting applications from highly motivated middle school and high school teachers in Illinois public school districts. Three to five middle and/or high schools are selected each academic year as ILWFS partner schools for intensive support through on-site teacher training and classroom resources. Those who are sincerely interested in incorporating wind energy into their curriculum and providing outreach to their community are encouraged to apply by March 1, 2013. Eligible disciplines include math, science, agriculture, industrial technology, engineering, and related subject disciplines. An open-enrollment generalized workshop will be available to all schools wishing to incorporate wind energy into their curriculum. Schools selected for the program will be notified by April 2, 2013.
