At 7pm EST on February 12th at the Greenfield Garden Cinemas in Greenfield, MA, a group of 36 seniors from EL's Four Rivers Charter Public School will screen their documentary on the Cape Wind offshore wind project, the culminating piece of their semester-long energy study.

The proposed wind farm, Cape Wind, off the coast of Cape Cod has been mired in political conflict, legal protests and permitting problems...

The students’ classes all tied into the project, bringing real life lessons into the classroom. In science, they focused on the physics of energy. In english, they studied the narrative structure of documentary film. In social studies, they explored the politics and research, and in math they learned how to interpret and present data related to energy.
