Grade 1 in front of Sikorsky's wind tunnel

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it is a helicopter at Holy Trinity School


A community outreach program from Sikorsky HeliVenture visited Holy Trinity School in Wallingford, on Wednesday, April 23. This program engages young people in science, technology, engineering, and math. Under the tutelage of Sikorsky engineers, 220 children performed hands-on activities to learn more about flight. In one activity the students tested their self-made airfoils in the Lift Demonstration Booth’s simulated air tunnel.

The students were enthralled to have engineer Michael Roth, Holy Trinity graduating class of 2003, demonstrate the physics behind vertical lift. It is evident that Holy Trinity School has some engineers in the making. The students grasped lessons in force, lift, fixed-wing and rotary-wing airfoils. Holy Trinity School is most appreciative of the opportunity to learn from these HeliVenture engineers who are thrilled to teach students about how helicopters fly.

Holy Trinity School recognizes Sikorsky’s commitment to the community by providing “top-flight” engineers. Special thanks to engineers David Lutian, Kevin Laitenberger, Rich DiMauro and Michael Roth for sharing their time and talent enriching our students.
