Mr. Safrit's 5th grade class Skyped with Lief Benitez, a recent UNM graduate, about Aerospace Engineering. The students have been studying about force and motion as part of their science curriculum; so it was great to hear from an expert in the field.
The students got answers to their question, "When are we ever going to use this?" as well as connections to what they had learned in class. It was great to talk to a true expert in the field. Big thanks to Mrs. Bostian and her 5th grade son Dalton for helping set the Skype up!
