Jamaica 2010 -- Environmental Earth Science and Political Science

During Spring Break 2010, Environmental Earth Science Professor Fred Loxsom and Political Science Professor Helma de Vries accompanied 12 Eastern students to Lucea, Jamaica to build a wind turbine to provide electricity to the local high school.

The group not only built the turbine but also visited local wind farms; enjoyed the scenic ocean and inland setting; and had an opportunity to get to know members of the local community.
