Student Competition Prepares the Next Generation of Wind Energy Entrepreneurs

The Collegiate Wind Competition is one of several Energy Department-supported programs aiming to inspire the next generation of clean energy leaders.

Entrepreneurs and teachers alike recognize that one of the best ways to spur learning and innovation is to offer students a real hands-on project — a complex task with no single solution, a test that inspires ingenuity. Challenges and design competitions of this nature motivate students to take their newfound knowledge beyond the classroom, serving as a training platform as they prepare to enter the workforce.
