Both the construction and the final project of the Outdoor Clean-Energy Demonstration & Learning Lab offer STEM learning experiences for students in Westmoreland County.
The Outdoor Clean Energy Demonstration & Learning Lab, a project of the Eastern Westmoreland Career and Technology Center (EWCTC), involves students with the creation of a full-size, electric power-generating windmill and outdoor lab space near the EWCTC campus in Latrobe. During its construction phase, students have the opportunity to take part in industry-level green construction work. Upon completion, the Learning Lab will serve as an educational venue available for middle school and high school teachers and their student audiences across Westmoreland County, providing resources for hands-on lessons and projects that address environmental science and the production of clean, renewable, electric power.
