7/12 - 7/16 Interstellar Exploration & 3D Digital Design Week
July 12 - July 16
Discover the universe beyond Earth and between celestial bodies. Understand the physics of a flying rocket. Explore the world of rocketry as we discuss different flying object. Test your own rocket and see how far high it can fly. Learn the difference between meteors and asteroids. Study the chemical compounds of a comet by making one yourself. Build your own LEGO® rover. Program the rover to explore the colony of rough terrain in Mars. Students will also learn about the wonderful world of 3D modeling. Participants will explore how computer-aided design has allowed engineers throughout the world to develop new architectural innovations, medical advancements, and create new toys. Students will have the opportunity to create their own 3D models and prototypes, all while learning how engineers are using 3D modeling and printing.
