Engineering Design Challenge - A Lesson in Aeronautics
You are a starry-eyed aerospace engineer and a groovy world traveler. You dream of taking off in the blue, gliding where the air is stratified and floating down to Peru. Using only the materials from your Groovy Lab in a Box, can you design, build, and launch an airplane generating thrust with a propeller which travels fifteen feet? STEMists, get ready to pack up and fly away!
During your ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS, you will explore Bernoulli’s Principle, the principles of lift, drag, weight, and thrust. Understand that wings are lifters, build a catapult airplane, a helicopter with propeller, and much, much, more.
