This program for middle school students and instead of kits with activities, we use Kerbal Space Program, simulators and other build projects to Explore Aerospace. How can you participate?
Currently available at our building in Portland we learn about aviation through hands-on explorations and experience flight with X Plane Flight Simulators. You even have a chance to take a flight (and take the controls!) with our volunteer pilots.
Launch your curiosity about space missions with Kerbal Space Program, where you’ll learn about the principles of space travel and experiment with building your own mission and craft. Or try your hand at Robotics in the VEX IQ Challenge, teams of students design and build a robot to participate in a wide variety of live and virtual game-based engineering challenges. Interested in Electric Aircraft? Then the EPIC Challenge is for you! In the Electric Propulsion Innovation Challenge (EPIC), a team of middle school students design, build and fly an aircraft that will successfully carry out a specific task.
So if you are in Portland, follow this link to see if you qualify for our programs.
