… Will blow you away. This week, 150 students at 10 universities across the U.S. competed in the Collegiate Wind Competition, which took place at the American Wind Energy Association’s annual conference. Over the course of three intense days, the students put their wind turbines through rigorous performance testing, crafted their own business plans and pitched their turbine designs to wind industry leaders. In this photo, students from James Madison University take a moment to discuss their strategies for the competition.
