Girls in STEM - Physics of Flight - Day Program
Girls will be learning everything that goes into jet propulsion and what it takes to be a “rocket scientist.” Throughout this program participating girls will learn all about basic physics and engineering career paths within jet propulsion. Girls will be given a scenario before being tasked to build rockets which will be tested and refined throughout the prototyping process. Woven into the program will be STEM Mentor presentations from real life engineers currently building rockets within their career. Girls will learn about the education, teamwork necessary within large scale engineering projects, and basic principles of flight.
