OESJ Jr/Sr Students Compete at GE

On Saturday March 17th, 15 students from the OESJ Jr/Sr High School competed in the KIDWIND competition at General Electric (GE) in Schenectady. Jolynn Cedeno, Kyara Nichols, Alex Ouderkirk, Rebekah Semple, Skylynn Sargeant, Shelby Groff, Mackenzie Barker, Emilie Peterson, Cadence Johnson, Magdelina Pellerito, Paetyn Logan-Dilenbeck, Jesse Walrath, Margaret Christensen, and Sebastian Ackernecht. This STEM Competition is meant to show students the different aspects of wind energy technology and how it can help our environment. Before attending the GE Event, students in the eighth grade and technical math classes competed at school and the top three teams advanced to SUNY Polytechnic Institute where they got to test their design in a real wind tunnel. In between the two events students were able to change their designs before the final competition at GE. The GE competition not only consisted of testing their turbine, but students also presented to CEO’s at GE where they were judged on their knowledge of wind energy.
