• Aviation Class                                                                                    

    Description:
     
    Aviation Projects is a semester long, mechanical engineering class that will introduce students to the fundamentals of flight, and require them to construct a series of flying model aircraft from plans.  This series will begin with simple models and increase in complexity and performance with each new design.

     Objectives- Students will:
    • use diagrams and read technical writing to construct functional and successful models accurately measure and
    • cut materials to high tolerances to construct functional and successful models model
    • use scientific inquiry in an attempt to solve practical problems
    • record the process of scientific investigation including questions, design ideas, predictions, model diagrams, and results
    • investigate the forces that act upon machines of any kind
