Wind Powering America's Wind for Schools project, which began in 2005 and ended in September 2013, worked to promote wind industry workforce development by focusing on K-12 and university educators and students to counter the trend of reduced numbers of U.S. students entering science and engineering fields. The project also raised awareness in rural America about the benefits of wind energy through wind energy curricula and on-site wind energy projects.
