On March 17th, some Messalonskee Middle School students went to the Maine Science Festival in Orono. They heard from two engineering companies located in Maine (Pratt & Whitney and FMI) as well as the Physics department from UMaine Orono about what engineering is all about! Finally students were able to peruse hands-on science experiments with scientists from a variety of schools and businesses. Mrs. Ripa hopes to bring students again next year! #WeAreRSU18
