Grades 11-12. Year-long. Weighted grade. Prerequisite is IED or POE and appropriate grade-level math and science.
This course propels students' learning in the fundamentals of atmospheric and space flight. As they explore the physics of flight, students bring the concepts to life by designing and airfoil, propulsion system, and rockets. They learn basic orbital mechanics using industry-standard software. They also explore robot systems through projects such as remotely operated vehicles.
