I’ve been involved with the Lindbergh Electric Airplane Flight (LEAF) STEM Challenge for a couple years now and it is a fantastic engineering design challenge for kids in grades 6-12.
Each summer we hold a workshop for coaches and teachers to showcase the awesome-ness of the project and to walk participants through the process so that they can teach it to kids. (Who wouldn’t want to design, build and fly their own little airplane?)
This year’s coaches workshop will be:
Friday, August 11 at Raisbeck Aviation High School in Seattle
Registration is Now Open!
During this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to leverage basic math and physics to design, build and fly an electric airplane (max wingspan of 36″) that will carry the most cargo.
Registration is $50 and includes a continental breakfast, printed materials, lunch, clock hours certificate (for WA teachers), and all supplies needed to build one airplane.
For more information or to register (and to see the some of the airplanes!) visit the project site.
Space is limited to 20 participants and we only offer one workshop each year, so if you are interested, sign up now. Use the promo code GOSTEM17 to register for a reduced rate.
