CHAMPAIGN -- An area school could see a new addition. Jefferson Middle School has been working to get a wind turbine for months. Teachers want to use it in their lessons.

The turbine would be installed in the field between the middle school and Centennial High School. It would be a small one; no bigger than a light pole. It would make lessons more hands-on.

The school board will pick a contract for the project Monday night. School leaders hope to have the turbine installed by December.
