Aviation Day Camp

Flight Design Lab

Aerospace Engineering and Aircraft Design 

Entering Grades 5-7
Full Day Only

Program Dates 2023:

June 26-30
July 17-21
August 7-11

Leap into the world of aerospace engineering, building aircraft, drones, robots, circuits and more in a high-tech adventure in design!

Start in the Hiller Aviation Museum Invention Lab, a unique maker space equipped with authentic tools of science. Learn to use computer aided design, 3D printers, wind tunnels and more to solve a range of design challenges.

Investigate circuit electricity and take the challenge to the next level, using Artec robotics equipment to power electronic inventions capable of executing a variety of functions.  Code and operate flying drones and multipurpose robotics platforms using drag-and-drop programming.

Scale up the experience at the Museum’s Penguin airplane, a small airplane able to be assembled and disassembled by camp participants. Attach wings, stabilizers and control surfaces and rig all necessary control cables to gain exceptional insights into the function of different parts of an airplane and discover the engineering and mechanics required for each and every aircraft to take flight.

Observe high performance aircraft and modern engines and airframes close up and meet aviation professionals in a unique glimpse of the working world of aviation.
