Fingerprints

This session provides participants with an understanding of fingerprints and how they’re analyzed and compared in the forensic laboratory.

ADVANCED: POWER PLANTS

In this session, participants will expand on their discussion of the activities in the Introductory: Power Plants session by exploring Newton’s Third Law.

ADVANCED: FPG-9 BUILD AND FLY

In this session, participants will more deeply explore the engineering considerations with different types of planes. They will consider engineering trade-offs with different airfoil shapes, different wing shapes, and different control surfaces and powered versus non-powered flight.

INTRODUCTORY: AERODYNAMICS

In this session, participants will learn about the forces that act on an airplane in flight, as well as the primary control surfaces of a plane.

CARDBOARD FURNITURE

This session introduces participants to the three phases of the design process—investigating, planning, and building.

INTRODUCTION TO CAREERS IN AVIATION

This session introduces Explorers to the variety of careers in the aviation industry.

ADVANCED: AIRPORT OPERATIONS

In this session, participants will direct air traffic in a web-based simulator and design their own airport runway configuration.

ADVANCED AERODYNAMICS

In this session, participants will examine aerodynamics principles in a more generalized, deeper way. This activity is intended as a follow-up to the introductory lesson and discusses the principles that interact during flight.

INTRODUCTORY: FPG-9 BUILD AND FLY

In this session, participants will build and test their own gliders.

AVIATION—IN THE KNOW

In this session, Explorers will participate in an overall program review in the form of a game. Use it to add fun to the end of your program.
