Teacher and Student Tours
Students and teachers can schedule to tour the two New York State-designated Centers
of Excellence (CoE): the Advanced Energy Research & Technology Center (AERTC) and
the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT). Within the
two centers, students can learn about wind-related technology, such as transmission
modeling, grid integration, battery storage, and hydrogen cogeneration.
Additionally, attendees can experience advanced technologies in these disciplines
via artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality, and machine learning.
Members of the New York State Master Teacher Program attended a building tour in February,
and subsequent field trips have taken place for individual high schools. During the
tours, students also learn from external industry partners about career pathways and
educational opportunities within the expanding offshore wind workforce.
