FUNDAMENTALS OF FLIGHT Grades: 7th-8th

  • Workshop Leads: Kanu Vyas, Engineer (The Boeing Company—19 year SSC Volunteer) Van Richardson, Engineer (The Boeing Company—9 year SSC Volunteer)
  • Workshop Description: With an emphasis on FUN: students enjoy performing many simple experiments that demonstrate the fundamental principles involved with both lighter-than-air and heavier-than-air flight. We will build and fly a Rogallo-wing hang glider, as well as paper and balsa-wood airplanes, while learning about control surfaces and their functions by performing wind tunnel tests on wing sections you make yourself. You will also make water bottle rockets and hand-launched helicopters.
  • Subjects covered: Mechanics and Physics.
