Summary of the year
In our first year offering the course, 23 students participated in 5 project teams. We had projects from the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford, and the Dabiri Lab at Stanford. Projects were in two general categories - exploring Vertical Axis Wind Turbines with the Dabiri Lab, and exploring improving practices for farmers in India with the Precourt Institute.
5 Students traveled to India as part of the Precourt projects, and 4 students traveled to Lancaster California for real-time evaluation of their systems at a wind turbine farm.
