Nepal 2.0: Hartford High School Making a Difference

 

rom Hartford to the Himalayas

In 2013, eight students at the Academy of Engineering and Technology (AEGT) at Hartford High School, working with business and college mentors, made history by designing and building a renewable power system that brought power to the village of Saldang for the first time. In 2014, two additional teams of students from AEGT will design two more wind and solar systems to power the remote villages of Namdo and Karang, nestled within the Himalayan Mountains. The two teams will research, design and construct the turbines as part of their project-based engineering class. As in 2013, the students yearn to harness the wind and sun, bringing power to the residents of these remote villages, 13,000 feet high in the mountains.

Partially funded by the Werth Family Foundation, the Hartford business community and friends of AEGT, the team is seeking funding to complete the project.

It Takes a Village to Light Up a Village

The original Nepal Wind / Solar Project brought together students, teachers, advisory board members, alumni and business partners to develop a project that aligned to AEGT’s theme, implementing the skills students learned in class and promoting the skills needed to be successful in college and the workplace.

The Nepal 2.0 project will once more teach collaboration and teamwork, allowing students to benefit from a variety of skills brought forth by all community stakeholders.The ultimate goal is for a second group of Hartford high school students to help a community thousands of miles away to have the same opportunity to improve their way of living and learning.

 

Senior Associate Eddie Widofsky, AIA, LEED AP, BO serves on the Industry Advisory Board (IAB) for the AEGT at Hartford High School. One of the IAB’s initiatives this year is to help provide fundraising for this dynamic project.
