Engineer's Workshop

Aerospace Design and Construction

Entering Grades 6-8
Full Day Only - Includes Field Trip


Take on the creative challenge of aerospace engineering! Experience the tools used with modern aerostructures in a guided experience and work session in the Museumís Restoration Shop, then put the tools to the test by partially disassembling and reconstructing a real small aircraft.

Explore 21st century engineering design and cutting edge techniques in the Museumís new Invention Lab by using Computer Aided Design software to design and build a simple airfoil in cyberspace. Use a 3D printer to create a testable prototype, and use tabletop wind tunnels and flight tests to perfect the design.

Investigate real aircraft and modern aircraft operations with a special field trip to the Oakland Aviation Museum and San Francisco International Airport.† See a wide range of high performance aircraft ranging from historic designs from the dawn of flight to supersonic fighter aircraft.† Observe operations at a major international airport and visit different airport operations centers in a behind-the-scenes glimpse into aviation operations in our own backyard.
