In this class, students will learn about aeronautical engineering and work to engineer technologies that fly through the air in different ways. We will explore NASA’s aeronautical engineering work, including taking aerial photos. We will discover how some materials interact with air when placed in a vertical wind tunnel. We will explore drop copters and try to design one that falls slowly. We will also engineer flying discs that spin as they move through the air. Finally, students will use what they have learned about aeronautical engineering to design a model flying technology that meets a set of criteria and constraints.

About Your Extraordinary Saturday (YES)
For 1st – 4th Grade Students
A New Adventure Every Weekend
MITY's program for elementary students enables inquisitive, high achieving 1st - 4th grade students to continue learning outside of the traditional classroom. Courses are intentionally designed to inspire inquiry, activate imaginations, and engage eager learners in hands on discovery that is not possible within a regular classroom setting. While students are in class, parents are invited to listen to professional speakers on topics related to raising bright children, socialize with other parents, or visit a local coffee shop.
