U.S. Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee, has announced that the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Division of Electrical, Community and Cyber Systems has awarded $502,810 to North Dakota State University (NDSU).

The funds will be used to help NDSU engineering students research and develop plans to better incorporate wind farm power into U.S. grid systems and conduct two science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) workshops for K-12 students in the West Fargo School district and an annual summer camp at NDSU.

“NDSU’s research capacities are world-class, which is why the university is on the forefront of developing new technologies, as well as demonstrating their value,” says Hoeven.
