On students from Four Rivers Charter Public School in Greenfield showed their film "Blades of Change" at the IGERT seminar and talked about how they made it. Their film is about why the Block Island offshore wind farm succeeded while the Cape Wind project failed, and what the future is for offshore wind power in Massachusetts. In making the film they interviewed people from Mass CEC, DOER, and the statehouse; as well as executives at the Block Island wind farm developer, Deepwater Wind; folks from the Rhode Island Department of Energy; and some of the players in the Cape Wind project. They also interviewed several of our IGERT PhD students here at UMass Amherst.
