Advanced Alternative Energy

Advanced Alternative Energy prepares high school students for careers that can literally make a world
of difference. They learn about high-wage, high-skill, high-demand science and environmentally friendly
technologies that will prepare them for college and beyond.

During this one-year course, students solve problems and build the skills necessary to shape the future in the areas of photovoltaics, wind technology, advanced battery storage and smart home and smart grid energy-savings solutions.

Students practice digital electronic theory and apply electrical circuit concepts in connection with
advanced automated and robotics production to improve energy systems.

Students have opportunities to build, test and create, while taking part in interesting work-based learning activities and focused field trips to local businesses and research facilities. They may earn five college credits through Hudson Valley Community Colleges College in the High School program.
