Aero Webcast

Planetary Flight will cover atmospheric and non-atmospheric flight as it pertains to designing an aircraft. The classroom materials included in the "Teachers Desk" section provide a problem based learning approach and demonstrates how these materials can be integrated into a 5-12 curriculum. Steve Smith, our guest, is an Aerospace Researcher here at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA. His specialty is induced drag. Additionally, he is the coauthor of the upcoming Planetary Flight Project.

View the archive this special event where students were able to ask Steve questions. Be sure to read Steve's journals and chat archives which are linked to his biography.
