Intro to Aeronautical Engineering
Take part in a fun and educational class to learn what goes into airplane design. Students learn calculations that show how the math we learn gets used in real life.

See What Students Did During Our Fall 2012 Session
The Fall 2012 Wind Tunnel Class was visualized and planned from the very start of our program almost 2 years ago.
We saw a way of doing it. There were two very important things we taught the Fall session:
A. How a wind tunnel works. (It is more than blowing air through a tunnel.)
B. How you get airplane design data by using a wind tunnel and test models.
There are underlying objectives, however, which were also very important; TEAMWORK is highly necessary during any kind of engineering test. We have seen this in previous classes where we have used our propeller testing apparatus, and also when we have used our tension testing machine. The way our class members have worked together with great enthusiasm has been quite thrilling.
An associated activity was solving a few aerodynamic equations which led to design decisions regarding the performance of the model being tested.
