May the Forces Be With You

Intermediate

As the next frontier of asteroid mining and space travel unravels, let's understand what it takes to get off the ground and fly. This program delves into the foundations of aerospace technologies. Participants face off with powerful air; experience its drag and pressure; learn about laws of motion and how they impact flying things. Participants create parachutes, design force rockets, understand air foils, and make keepsake model planes. stemforkids.net/courses/aerospace-engineering/
