WindAid Sets World Record for Highest Altitude Wind Generator with Northampton Volunteers!

Guinness World Record in Peru "...As one of the world's fastest-receding glaciers, Pastoruri is a tourist destination. The turbine brings electricity to shop owners, guides and cooks who serve tourists headed to see the glacier, said Christine Armstrong, the NCC associate professor of communication who designed the study-abroad course. Students say it was a life-changing trip that reinforced their belief in the power of volunteerism while exposing them to a foreign culture.
