STEM Hovercraft Project Revived!

Sikorsky Global Helicopters is breathing  new life into the Hovercraft project!  Engineering Pathway teachers and students have been working with the Hovercraft kit that included a propeller and engine, but still needed some resources including a way to vacuum wrap the base of the craft—and other incidentals.  Chris Czyzewski, Sikorsky engineer and partner, invited in a team of electrical and mechanical engineers, who work on helicopters every day, to lend a hand to Jocelyn Long and her student project managers Miranda McMillen and Michael Maggiore.  Next step?  Project planning and purchasing a few supplies………keep watching for the update!
