Aerospace engineering for girls who make a difference!

Intermediate (Grades 6 - 8)

During the first half of the week, campers will experience an in-depth look into the designing and manufacturing process of aircraft. Campers will learn about aerodynamics and propulsion to help them design their own drones and planes. Campers will also learn about the manufacturing process, including materials and a chance to 3D print their own cookie cutters.


For the second half of the week, campers will learn the basics of drone flight, first on a training simulator before moving on to piloting in the great outdoors. After mastering the controls, campers will get to put their new skills to the test during a search and rescue mission!
