Explore the promise and challenges of bringing renewable energy generation to your community

Participants will look at wind pattern data from NOAA to determine why the area off of Cape Cod was specifically targeted for this new build. Participants will then use wind pattern data to determine the suitability of their own community for wind energy and think through challenges of placing wind energy within their community. This will be done using the CER (Claim-Evidence-Reasoning) format which scientists, historians and researchers use to study a problem and propose a solution. A “claim” is a statement that answers a question; “evidence” is the data that supports the claim and “reasoning” explains how the evidence that supports the claim is true.
