Transcending “what if” to “can do” attitudes are what’s needed to excel not only in the field of aerospace engineering, but in all we do. Students work as a team and confront mission scenarios that require dynamic problem solving and critical thinking—21st century learning skills required in the workplace. Introduction to Space Flight is designed to foster a basic understanding of space technology. The session is filled with interactive lab and classroom learning. Topics covered include the history of space flight, propulsion theory, orbital mechanics fundamentals, space shuttle and International Space Station operations. Theory and practice converge in hands-on learning when applied to present and future commercial, industrial and military applications in space. (ages 8-11)
