Big Bug News. (December 7, 2011). "Wind turbine part of Orme's sustainability goals."
The Arizona Wind for Schools team announced the installation of a Skystream turbine at The Orme School. On the installation day, Wind for Schools state facilitator Karin Wadsack and Northern Arizona University student employee Marilla Lamb taught science classes at the school. They worked with the middle school students to assemble and test KidWind Project wind turbine kits and taught the high school science classes about wind/wildlife interactions, utility-scale wind turbine environmental monitoring, and the cost-benefit economics of distributed wind installations like the one at the school.
