Aerospace Engineering

Rising Grades 7 to 9

Launch into the physics and engineering behind flight, rocket science, and space exploration.

This course provides students with a broad overview of aerospace engineering. It features lessons on the behavior, design, construction, and operations of both aircraft and spacecraft, as well as current and emerging aerospace technologies, the physics behind flight and orbit, and the chemistry of propulsion.

Students complete projects such as making hot air balloons, building a wind tunnel to test airfoils, and creating and firing DIY sugar-powered rocket motors.
