4th & 5th Graders Meet Barrett's Engineer

Posted by Laurie Sullivan at 11/9/2014

We are thrilled that Dr. Stu Jessup, a retired mechanical engineer, will be volunteering in the Discovery Lab this year. Dr. Jessup comes to us from the Scientists in the Schools program. On Thursday and Friday he shared his interests and career with the students. Dr. Jessup then demonstrated how propellers can be used to generate electricity. Starting next week he will be working with small groups of 4th & 5th grade students on a hands-on engineering design challenge.
