Like our in-person Coaches Workshops, our Virtual Coaches Workshop is a great way to learn more about EPIC (Electric Propulsion Innovation Challenge) and design & build your own airplane!
Adult participants who are unable to join us for our in-person workshops or prefer an asynchronous learning environment can learn the same content virtually and on your own schedule with on-demand help along the way.
When purchasing this workshop a physical Coaches Kit containing essential materials will be added to your cart (no additional charge) and shipped to your provided address. Add the remaining supplies to complete your demo airplane and you’re ready for takeoff!
Please note: Participants will not have the opportunity to test their airplanes unless they have access to a flight circle.
Only an internet connection is required as all modules are browser-based. There is no software to download and nothing to install.
Your Coaches Kit contains the essential materials needed to build your airplane, but participants will need to supply your selected wing material [We recommend extruded polystyrene (xps) foam insulation], selected fuselage [We recommend balsa wood sticks] and selected empennage [We recommend a foam plate].
Tools required are a drill, hot glue gun & glue sticks, pliers, sand paper (multiple grits), scissors, screw driver, soldering iron & solder and a wire stripper. Optionally, a hand seamer and a pair of pliers would be handy to have but aren’t required.
Our partner, Pacific Northwest AIAA, is an approved Washington Clock Hours Provider and has approved this workshop for 8 STEM clock hours for WA teachers for no additional fee. Teachers can receive clock hours for completing the workshop at 80% proficiency or higher. Clock Hours Certificate requests must be made within 10 days of workshop completion.
Teachers in other states can also receive 8 professional development CEUs for workshop completion at 80% proficiency or higher, but acceptance is determined by your organization’s approval committee.
Refunds for online courses and workshops can only be provided before the participant has accessed the workshop AND before the Coaches Kit of physical materials has been shipped. If these two conditions are met, a refund can be issued back to the same payment method used, less a 10% admin fee.
Our EPIC Virtual Coaches Workshop is offered as a self-paced, asynchronous workshop. Participants will have 3 weeks from the date of enrollment to complete it.
