Aeronautics and Space Camp for High School Girls 2016
The University of Wisconsin-Superior’s Transportation and Logistics Research Center is hosting the inaugural two-day Aeronautics and Space Camp for high school girls.
Day one will consist of various aspects of flight, rocket launching and outer space. The girls will explore the basics of flying on flight simulators, learning how to read gauges, determining settings, the conditions that allows planes to fly, and how to take off smoothly.
There will be a field trip to tour the Duluth International Airport, Cirrus Aircraft, and the 148th Fighter Wing to learn about the companies and the careers they offer. After dinner, the day will conclude with a show at the University of Minnesota Duluth’s Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium.
The second day will consist of learning how to land smoothly on the flight simulator and building and launching a homemade rocket. After lunch, the girls will learn the history of women in aviation and information about aeronautics and space careers, internships and scholarships.
The girls will stay overnight in the UWS dorms.
