During the meeting, some of the RET (Renewable Energy Technology) students helped with teaching the different teachers. They all worked together to create wind turbines, which greatly impressed the adults in the room.
Teachers were so impressed by how well Vanyo taught the students, they invited her to come to their schools and teach even more teachers to help spread the word of wind energy. Vanyo will be going to Iowa State University next week after school to teach and later on to Cedar Falls for a whole day to teach.
“This is just another step to Boone teachers and students changing the education in the state of Iowa,” Vanyo said.
