Advanced Flight Camp
“Man must rise above the Earth – to the top of the atmosphere and beyond – for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.” – Socrates
There are few better ways to learn about the laws of physics that govern our universe than by studying flight. From commercial aircraft and fighter jets to rockets and satellites, the world of flight is filled with the spirit of scientific adventure. In one week, campers will capture that spirit of adventure through hands on lessons and a design-build-test approach.
In Advanced Flight Camp, campers will experience first hand the dynamics of airfoils, servo motors and controlled combustion in order to better understand the engineering approach to problem solving and concepts like lift, thrust, and aerodynamics. Their advanced study of flight will culminate with the building and flying of their own quadcopter drone.
- Students should bring a packed lunch from home.
- There are 15 spots in this camp. Registration is determined on a first-come first-served basis.
