Science Saturday - Helicopter Aerodynamics!

Posted by SeekonkLibrary

Our Science Saturday program is back with a brand new topic – helicopter aerodynamics! Civil Air Patrol educator Oscar Orringer will lead this program over three weeks in October. Students will learn how helicopters and quadcopters operate, build their own helicopters, see a demonstration of how “lift” works, and have a contest to see who has the fastest helicopter!

Science Saturdays are on 10/6, 10/20 and 10/27. Register once for all three sessions. This program is recommended for students in grades 4 and above (parental assistance recommended for younger students).

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
