Introduction to Aerodynamics
This course introduces foundational concepts of flight.
-observe forces that act on objects in motion through the air
-learn about factors affecting flight
-make rockets from different materials
-launch and methodically observe their flying prototypes
-apply the scientific method to understand their projects outcomes
-amend their creations to make them increasingly aerodynamic
Projects include creating and testing ring and straw racers, helicopters, slingshot rockets, and water pressure rockets.
This course introduces foundational concepts of flight, incorporating projects that build rockets and other objects for flight. After learning about a new facet of aerodynamics each class, students will use the concepts to hypothesize about project outcomes. An individual or team project will allow students to test their ideas in class, and continually use feedback to make their flight project more aerodynamic.
