For two and a half days last week, University of Colorado professor Anatolyi Glushchenko guided Huron High School’s STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) class in activities dealing with alternative energy, such as wind turbines. 

His visit was sponsored by Apex Clean Energy, a Virginia company which is looking to build a wind farm, called the Emerson Creek wind project, somewhere in the Firelands region. The endeavor will benefit Erie and Huron counties and might open next year, according to the project’s website. 

A company representative talked with students and encouraged them to consider careers in wind farming and related fields, teacher Patricia Ryan said.

Huron senior Bobby Herber measures a coil while working on a mechanical activity at Huron High School on Wednesday, May 2, 2018. 

“We are so excited and honored to have someone of this calabar take time out of their important work to teach high schoolers,” she said.
