Reaching out
As part of their AEDC experience Bel-Aire Elementary students conducted an experiment designed to show how drag can affect an object in motion. After the experiments, the students discussed how different features of an aircraft, like wings and landing gear, can affect the way a plane flies. The students toured also toured the Propulsion Wind Tunnel and the 16-foot supersonic wind tunnel and learned about projectiles, such as missile models, and impact testing in the G-Range.
