Holyoke High School Welcomes PDI for Semester-Long Learning Opportunity

On working with PDI, Jake Belanger, STEM Academics Coordinator and Mathematics Department Chair shared:

“The field based learning experience with Tom Feldman & PDI was a highlight for this year's students in the Technology, Engineering, & Design Academy at HHS. Students left the site visit with a deeper understanding of the engineering process, a meaningful real world connection to their classroom academics, and an enriched first hand engineering experience they will remember for a lifetime. I am grateful to Mr. Feldman for providing our students the opportunity to engage with him and local professionals associated with his project. Providing our students these meaningful field based learning experiences is an essential part of advancing the mission of college and career readiness and I hope to continue building the educational partnership with Mr. Feldman and PDI. Thank You!”

Bill Hubbard, Professor of the Marine Science, Safety and Environmental Protection Department at MMA commented on the experience of working with PDI:

"Cadets at Massachusetts Maritime Academy gained hands on experience in underwater video monitoring of the PDI turbine.  They were able to assist in deployments and understand the operation of this marine hydrokinetic system.  Both the operational, environmental and safety aspects of the deployment provided students with valuable skills."
