Join some of the leaders in aerospace technologies to learn what it takes to be an Aerospace Engineer. In this class, we will meet scientists from the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP), learn about astrobiology, and plan our mission to Mars. We will also get a chance to see one of only a few university-based Mission Operations Centers, where LASP undergraduate and graduate students perform mission operations for NASA satellites totaling more than $1.5 billion in value. Additionally, we will apply our maker skills and explore the forces of flight, designing gliders and launching a rocket! We’ll also learn about different aspects of aerospace engineering, including flight planning, pilot communications and parachutes. Get ready to push yourself in this amazing mix of hands-on science and engineering.
