- What is this camp about?
This program offers students the opportunity to learn about
aeronautics, mechanical systems and electronic controls. Students will
have the opportunity to build and fly a remote control plane, construct
and test structures, launch a model rocket and much more. Other
activities will include a field trip to a local area airport to see how
full aircraft work. Classroom work will include the basics of flight
and the understanding of structures and what makes an aircraft move.
Hands-on activities in the wind tunnel and building labs will reinforce
concepts introduced during lectures. Experiences during the week will
expose participants to the basic principles of mechanical and aerospace
