West High student’s solar research project takes flight

Can you imagine a Boeing 747 powered completely by solar panels? Manchester West High School sophomore Noah Orr could and wanted to figure out if it’s possible. Orr is participating in the STEM Discovery Lab’s Agnes Lindsay STEM Fellowship Program. As part of the program, Orr is conducting a research project with the support of his mentor, University of New Hampshire Manchester Biotechnology student Tina Minard.
