Discovery Science: Flight


“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 to 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 through hands on lessons and a design-build-test approach.

Introductory Flight Camp

In Introductory Flight Camp, campers will build gliders, long-distance slingshots, and parachutes to learn important concepts like the scientific method, gravitational force and air resistance. Their introduction to the study of flight will culminate with the building and launching of their own model rocket.

  • Grades: Incoming 5th-8th
  • Fee: $195
  • Staff: TBA

Advanced Flight Camp

In Advanced Flight Camp, campers will get experience with 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.
