This hands-on program, designed for high school students who are preparing to take high school Physics or have already completed it, covers critical laws of flight, gravity, and motion, as well as broader topics within aeronautics and aerospace technologies.
Students construct and test model airplanes while examining thrust, lift, drag, and weight under varying conditions. During their experiments, they will also explore the ways in which ailerons, elevators, rudders, and flaps affect an aircraft’s aerodynamics and stability.
Many lectures and exercises will center around acceleration, centripetal force, and g-force.
This program provides a great pre-college experience for teens considering an engineering or computer science major.
