Jim Hendrickson, instructor in engineering at Penn State Beaver, is well-known for the projects he gives his students. For example, over the years, they’ve created a 3D model of a mill in Ohio; worked on the restoration and redesign of the waterwheel at Gaston’s Mill at Beaver Creek State Park near in Columbiana County, Ohio; and reverse-engineered the Bessemer oil field pumping engine at Moraine State Park in Butler County, Pennsylvania.
