High-tech educational tool
The Life Lion helicopter was brought to University Park as part of the first-year seminar AEROSP 097S, Hands-On Helicopters, to give freshmen a chance to check out a working rotorcraft vehicle. Students were able to ask the crew questions as well as examine the aircraft. The course is taught by Anna Howard, instructor, and Edward Smith, associate professor of aerospace engineering.
