Ben Urmston

Ben has worked in outdoor education since 2001 in places such as Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, Wyoming, Utah, Maine, Florida and Baja, Mexico. His degree in aerospace engineering has served him well in working out the details of sail theory, climbing anchor forces and hypothermia. When not instructing or cruising on his sailboat, Ben works at a high school in western Massachusetts teaching Engineering, Astronomy, Physics and American Sign Language. He still dreams of becoming a NASA astronaut so he can practice his expeditionary skills in space.
