In this session, participants will expand on their discussion of the activities in the Introductory: Power Plants session by exploring Newton’s Third Law.
In this session, participants will build and test their own gliders.
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.
This session introduces participants to the three phases of the design process—investigating, planning, and building.
This session helps Explorers understand the four forces of flight.
Explorers will be introduced to the basics of internal combustion engines.
Explorers will be introduced to one of the standards used in engineering, called a design process.
Explorers will be introduced to the basics of electrical systems within the automobile.
Explorers will be introduced to the basics of transmissions and drivetrains.
This session will present an overview of the mechanical engineering discipline and will allow Explorers to conduct a short, fun experiment that is related to mechanical engineering.
