Put your birdbrain to work while you explore Aerospace Engineering. Investigate how birds have inspired engineers to build flying machines. Discover other animals that fly - even some that don't have wings! Use these creatures as inspiration for daily design sessions in which you will build and test your own flying contraptions. Your imagination and engineering skills are sure to take flight with this camp.

Activities: design wings, flying bugs, reptiles and mammals, build a glider and more

Highlights: use the engineering design process to create different flying objects that use the same principles as different animals
