We are thrilled that engineer Dr. Stu Jessup will be working with 4th & 5th grade students this year. Dr. Jessup comes to us via Arlington Public Schools’ partnership with AAAS Scientists & Engineers in the Classroom program. Last year students built and tested cantilevers and boats. This fall Dr. Jessup is designing an awesome new engineering project for the students…stay tuned…

The students’ cantilevers and boats are highlighted in a video featuring current 5th Grade students: THANK YOU DR. JESSUP video: https://vimeo.com/131145531
