VIDEO: Middleburgh STEM Students Learn About Grid of the Future
Helping to educate the next generation of energy leaders is an important part of what we do, and a key element of our community outreach program. Our team was excited to host students and teachers from Middleburgh High School on December 14 for a control room tour and conversation about the grid of the future.
Watch this WNYT NewsChannel 13 story to hear Middleburgh students and teachers share their experiences learning about the role of the NYISO and the exciting transformation of the grid; as well as comments from Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Emilie Nelson.
“We get to talk to people in the field and get to see this in action,” said Mollie Burgett, AP environmental science teacher. “You’re not looking at a textbook, or on YouTube, you're not thinking about it in theory but talking to people who live it every day.”
