Travel through the history of flight and learn the concepts of lift, gravity, drag and thrust. You’ll begin by building and flying hot air balloons to explore lighter than air flight. Then on to the rocket age, where you will build a high altitude rocket, test different rocket engines and calculate altitude. Will yours be the highest? You will end the week learning how to fly a drone using VR Technology – a great intro to the Drone Class offered July 6-10.
