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.

Participate in a special field trip to San Francisco International Airport to observe modern aircraft in action. Tour the United Airlines Maintenance facility (security conditions permitting) for a unique close-up view of the engines, airframes and aerostructures used in 21st-century aircraft, or visit the Oakland Aviation Museum to survey a diverse collection of large-scale aircraft.
