University of Southern California The USC Andrew and Erna Viterbi School of Engineering Pre-College Summer Programs - Student Portfolios

Week 4

This week, we learned about aerospace engineering.  To prepare for our project, we did a series of tasks such as building a foam airplane, a wooden airplane, and making a straw rocket.  These taught us about center of gravity and center of pressure and gave us an idea on how to build our own rockets and airplane.  To see more about our rockets and airplane, click on the "Rockets and Airplane" tab on the side.
