Aero Design Challenge

Saturday, October 24, 2015
Program duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Start times: 10am through 1:30 pm

ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED (see below)

The Aero Design Challenge introduces students to the engineering design process with a series of Museum-based, aerodynamics-themed inspiration experiences, then launches them into a mission to design, test, and present a prototype of an engineering vehicle designed to meet a specific design requirement.

This yearís program theme explores the aerodynamics of propellers.† The exploration experience will include discovery stations throughout the Museum, including propeller evaluation, wind tunnel testing, flight simulation and more.† Participants will then design, build and test a propeller of their own design able to provide sufficient thrust to propel a test vehicle across a designated distance.

Fees

There are no fees or cost for children and adults participating in the Aero Design Challenge on October 24, but space is limited and advance reservations are required (see below).
