SPARTA, Wis. (WKBT) - Students in Sparta learned about the production of renewable electricity Tuesday at a hydro-power station.
Sparta's Western Technical College hosted the local eighth graders, giving them a tour of the campus' hydroelectric generation facility in Angelo. Nearly 150 students learned about the technology and science behind renewable electricity through different sessions, including hydro- and solar-power stations.
Western instructors say it's a good chance to show how science lessons can be used in life.
"It's something that they're doing in their science classes so it's a perfect example where they can come out and learn about what they're learning in science right now and actually see it in action in the real world,” said Western Technical College Electronics Instructor Jon Burman.
Students came from Cashton, Cochrane Fountain City, and Royall middle schools.
