ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION are a major focus of the Nova Scotia Community College. As part of this work we are presenting the third year of this exciting program opportunity!
The 2019 NSCC Weather Station Project will provide an opportunity for an employee from the School of Trades and Technology to support program participants in this two-week program scheduled for May 2019. NSCC is offering this program in partnership with the T.A. Marryshow Community College from Grenada (http://www.tamcc.edu.gd/) and Grenlec the local power utility. NSCC program participants will collaborate on the 2018 Weather Station Project with counterparts from the T.A. Marryshow Community College (TAMCC).
The project will be the design and implementation of extensions to environmental data acquisition systems on the island which reflect the operating conditions and limitations learned from the previous phase of this project. Wind measurements is one of the key areas identified as an addition to each system.
The role of the selected employee will be to work collaboratively with the ‘senior’ employee lead and the students in all the pre-departure phases of the program but will not travel to Grenada in 2018. Upon program approval for May 2019, the ‘junior’ employee will become the ‘senior’ lead and will participate in the travel component of the program. The senior employee lead for the 2019 program is Gord Wilkie, Electrical Engineering Technology Faculty at the Ivany Campus.

It is the most southern of the Caribbean island chain known as the Windward Islands. Grenada is also known as the "Island of Spice" because of the production of nutmeg and mace crops of which Grenada is one of the world's largest exporters.

Grenlec is the local electric power utility, has indicated that they are installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in various locations across the island.
