    I was asked in another venue to describe what we do in Propeller School, so I thought I would post that reply here.

    For a quick snapshot, Propeller School is a half-day seminar that has become one of the best parts of my job. It is an informal, interactive, and fun event, where I get to drill down in the “hidden nature” of propellers. It is not software training or a high-level academic class, but my way of exposing the behavior of propellers AND water so that anyone (with a little appreciation of basic physics) can understand the propellers that are put on their boats or used in their projects.​

    Looking forward to our next Propeller School in Ft. Lauderdale next week!
