An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic Unit on Wind Turbines Recently the largest wind farm in the US has been constructed in northwest Iowa near our community. This integrated unit is designed to give students a broad background on how the winds have effected the development of the Midwestern plains, the progress of harnessing the wind as a renewable energy source, lessening our dependence on non-renewable resources and decreasing environmental pollution. In addition, it demonstrates the importance of our home area to the state and national economy.
