STEM DESIGN THINKING - Flight Technology

Course Descriptions

  • Biotechnology – Discover and explore the study of flight via science as it pertains to birds and insects. Participants will learn about the ability of birds and insects to defy gravity and fly. They will learn about biology and how birds and their musculoskeletal systems allow them to fly.
  • Computer Science – Enter the world of coding as you learn computer programming and the fundamentals of computer science via a hands-on problem solving. Participants will learn about programming via MIT App Inventor. Students will learn about flight via flight simulators. You will learn how to implement the Design Thinking model as it applies to Computer Science.
  • Pre-Engineering – Students will learn about flight and how to solve problems utilizing the Engineering Design Process (EDP) and in particular tackle Aerospace Engineering challenges. Students will learn to fly a drone. You will learn how to implement the Design Thinking model as it applies to Engineering.
All students will participate in a collaborative group problem solving challenge. Collaboration, creativity and ingenuity will be an integral part of the experience as students learn to share ideas and learn from each other.
