The Junior Aerospace Engineering classes will help to introduce the youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of aircraft and spacecraft design. Teamwork and collaboration are essential to a little researchers. Students will explore the job of an aerospace engineer, investigate how design features such as size, shape, weight, and function affect the performance of a parachute, design a model rocket using a straw, clay, and paper fins and will test the design of their rocket using a pneumatic-launching device.
The event is designed for children from 4 to 7 years old. Limited spots are available. Preliminary registration is required, please follow the link to attend.
