Once a month, a team from Rolls-Royce volunteers in fourth and fifth grade science classrooms of Jennifer Campbell, Sonya Price and Mary Lou Jacklin. The Rolls-Royce team provides real world learning experience.

In October, the team introduced the students to the Rolls-Royce Corp. and the role of the engineers. November’s focus was on electrical circuits. In the upcoming months the team will focus on thermal energy, sound energy and light energy.

The team from Rolls-Royce includes Brahmaji Vasantharao, Igor Nemirovskiy, Amy Warrell, Paul Nashar and Brian Hamilton.
