This interactive provides students with an opportunity to become an aeronautical engineer by using their engineering skills or developing new ones to design and test airplane wings based on the methods of the Wright Brothers. Before getting started, students can explore an online exhibition from the National Air and Space Museum to better understand how they designed their first airplane. They'll step into the workshop and, using a wind tunnel, try their hand at wing design. Then take it to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina and see how it flies!
