Future CFD Engineer
Charlie Miller, Tony Hirt's grandson, shows off his 4th grade project that demonstrated how algebra can be used in real life situations as well as help the environment. Charlie thinks he might like to go into computational fluid dynamics (especially since he likes math). One can only hope!
