Pelham Memorial High School science scholars instruct Hutch students in engineering with paper airplanes

At Hutchinson Elementary School, 4th and 5th grade students are getting an up-close look at the world of engineering thanks to a partnership with the PMHS Science Honor Society. Sienna Giueseppi, a senior at PMHS, is leading an afterschool engineering clinic at the school where she’s introducing younger students to the fundamentals of the field.

During a recent session on March 21, Sienna and other high school students guided the younger students through designing, creating, and testing paper airplanes in order to find models that flew for the longest amount of time and traveled the greatest distance. This hands-on learning experience is providing Hutchinson students with valuable skills and knowledge.

We want to extend our gratitude to our high school students for bringing this innovative program to Hutchinson and for inspiring the next generation of engineers. This collaboration between PMHS and Hutchinson is creating a unique and enriching educational opportunity for all involved. Through projects like the afterschool engineering clinic, students are able to explore their interests, develop new skills, and build connections with older peers who can serve as mentors. Together, we are fostering a love of learning and sparking creativity in our school community.
