The Goal: A Coast to Coast Biofuel-Powered Flight from Rhode Island to California.

Who We Are

Ross McCurdy

    I am a Science Teacher at Ponaganset High School in the woods of Rhode Island where I teach Chemistry and Alternative Energy classes. I graduated from Rhode Island College with a degree in Biology and Science Teacher certification and began teaching at Ponaganset High School in 1998. In 2002 I received a Masters degree in Science Education and certification to teach Chemistry.

    Previous renewable energy projects include Protium, "The World's First Fuel Cell-Powered Band", our street legal Fuel Cell Model T hot rod, and our Coast to Coast Biodiesel Pickup Project.

    I am a Private Pilot and belong to a flying club based in Providence and Paramus Flying Club in New Jersey.

    The Coast to Coast Biofuel Airplane Project is the endeavor I am working to achieve now.
