Chadron State College, 2011

A couple weeks ago we taught a workshop at Chadron State College in Nebraska ~ 6 days long.

Eastern Michigan University, 2010

As mentioned in earlier posts, we got talked into teaching our 'homebrew wind' workshop for Eastern Michigan University near Detroit.  It was a 500 level course, for credit.  Half our students were profs at the university.  For the most part, they had very little experience with hands on stuff.  They didn't know the theory behind wind power or the basic physics but they picked up on that stuff quickly.  With 12 students and lots of tools, we were hard pressed to get one 12 foot machine built - but it did come out nicely.

Missouri, 2010

So I have tons of pictures saved up over the summer and here is 'part one' of our adventures this summer.  This posting will likely be the first of several I fire up here in short order.  I do like to write about all our adventures - we've had lots, and I'm way behind on posting about stuff.
