Pratt & Whitney Visits NBES

Students in Sharon Beckwith’s 4th Grade class worked with Pratt & Whitney  Engineers Alicia Walby and Ellen Weist to learn about Engineering & design. Through a hands-on, inquiry-based process, students learned about the key components of Hovercraft design, including friction, lift, and acceleration.  Each student designed and built their own Hovercraft.  Pratt & Whitney is developing school outreach programs across the country.  This is the first event of several planned visits to North Berwick Elementary School.  Guest “Students” included Superintendent Steve Connolly, and Technology Director Chris Russo, and Principal Ron Robert.  Photo Credit- Heather Sanfacon.
