The Cargo Airplane Challenge

The AIAA Educator Academy is a standards-based, hands-on way to engage your students in math and science. Join other high school teachers and students in comparing your solutiions to the challenge. This is an engaging way to introduce your students to the STEM of aerodynamics. Student teams use the Engineering Design Process to produce an authentic product, in this case a model airplane powered by a small DC motor. The goal is to carry the maximum amount of cargoas the airplane flies around a power pole which supplies electricity and mechanical support via a tether. The workshop will culminate in a local competition, hosted by the Dayton-Cincinnati section.
