Aerospace Engineering


The feats of mankind in the world of aerospace are nothing but awe-inspiring - the Beluga transporter, the supersonic jets, Armstrong's moon landing and the well-choreographed descent of Curiosity on Mars to name a few. 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 taternaut TM space suits, enjoy hands-on rocketry and make keepsake model planes.
