They've replaced the grain bins and now decorate many parts of the North Dakota landscape.
There are close to 1,000 wind turbines in the state, producing enough electricity to power about 390,000 homes, which is more homes than the state has right now.

But there's one turbine powering more than just houses.

Along the North Dakota prairie, hundreds of feet high up in the sky, stands this lone wind turbine.

As the blades spin on this powerful machine, down below, the minds of these students are turning as well.These guys are part of the wind energy technician program at Lake Region State College and this is their classroom.
