Bay Area Science Festival | 2019
Aero Design Challenge is an exploration into design and engineering. Each 3-hour program explores concepts in aeronautics that challenges participants to construct a working prototype.
Each student in the Aero Design Challenge participates in a series of discovery experiences in the Hiller Aviation Museum’s main gallery, including:
  • Wind tunnel experiments
  • Examination of full-scale aircraft
  • Flight simulation
  • Model helicopter flight tests

Following the exploration period, students join a small team to construct, test, improve and present a model helicopter able to satisfy the design requirements.

For this year’s Aero Design Challenge, participants investigate rocket propulsion while designing, building and flying an air powered rocket capable of attaining an altitude goal and landing as close as possible to the center of a target zone

Aero Design Challenge participants work in teams of up to 4 students, accompanied by a volunteer mentor, to investigate vertical flight. Discovery stations include the Invention Lab, Wind Tunnel and Flight Simulator Lab and the Museum’s collection of historic air and spacecraft.

Free but an RSVP is required.

Disclaimer: Please double check event information with the event organizer as events can be canceled, details can change after they are added to our calendar, and errors do occur.
