  • Students from preschool through 8th grade have read The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba as part of a One School, One Book initiative.  Wind energy became the number-one source of new U.S. electricity-generating capacity for the first time in 2012, providing some 42% of all new generating capacity. Since then, wind has continued to perform extremely well, along with all other renewables. Together, renewables accounted for two-thirds of all new U.S. generating capacity in 2015.

  • "The middle school recently finished a book called The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind. The book is about a young boy named William Kamkwamba who lives in Malawi, Africa and despite many hardships, pursues his dream of being a scientist by creating electricity. We experienced the book in many different ways: we learned in science how electricity works by building windmills and learning about batteries; we learned in art about kinetic energy by creating insects out of wicker reed and rice paper; and in Humanities, we wrote to him and experienced his struggles and triumphs by connecting with the story." -- Tom Pepper, 8th Grade Student speaks at Meeting for Assembly
