Aerospace Engineering is a high school-level course intended to propel 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 an 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. The course exposes students to some of the major concepts that they will encounter in a post-secondary engineering course of study in the area of aerospace engineering.
Note: This class will be offered next during the 2024-2025 school year.
