Stellar Academy Students See Mechanical Engineering In Action at Whetstones Chocolate Factory

Nease’s Stellar Academy of Engineering students recently enjoyed trips to Whetstones Chocolate Factory.  The students learned about the company’s founder and former engineer, Henry Whetstone.  Connecting the field trip to concepts they’ve studied in class, students learned about mechanical engineering and processes used to make the chocolates, and had the opportunity to see a small factory setting.  In addition to reinforcing their engineering curriculum, the students also had the chance to sample several chocolates, which made this field trip even sweeter.
