Flight and Aeronautics! is a STEAM-centered program taking place over the April Massachusetts school vacation week. This program introduces children to the science and engineering of aeronautics and flight, develops their interests in science and technology, builds friendships with fellow participants, and leads to heaps of fun along the way. Participants will start with the basics of flight by testing designs of paper and foam airplanes, crafting airfoils and making propellers and engines, and eventually moving on to building and flying drones. This program is intended for grades 5-8.
Program continues to run during April vacation.
