How does a "One-Time" class work?
Meets once at a scheduled time
Live video chat, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Great for exploring new interests and different styles of teachers
How Outschool Works
Don't see a time that works for you?
In this class, I will teach my students fun facts about aeronautics (a science that centers around the study of aviation) and how engineers have been inspired by different animals when designing different aircraft types. What animals have aeronomic engineers studied? Which animals are they looking at now, and what are engineers hoping to learn from them? We will also do a fun science experiment involving making a paper airplane and seeing how different weights impact flight performance. I...
- A deeper understanding of aeronautics. - An introduction to physics. - Understanding how many sciences integrate and tell us how the world around us works. - Learning how observing nature leads to some of the world's most significant technological discoveries.
I have a specialty in math and one in science.
I want all my students to write three paragraphs about what they learned in class and send them back to me.
- One piece of paper. - A handful of paperclips. - Worksheet that I post on the classroom board.
Once the class is over, I would like my students to write three paragraphs about what they learned in class and send them to me.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will be referring to an article published in the 2020 Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics about research projects conducted by Jaworski and Peake at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania and by Thomas Geyer at the Brandenburg University of Technology in Germany. We will also be looking at an article published in Physical Review Fluids in April 2022 about a research project performed by a group of physicists in the UCF Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Physicists: Adhikari, D. Loubimov, G. Kinzel, M. Bhattacharya, S. The other two articles we will be referring to are called Bird Flight 101, written by Ecologist Gordon Ramel, and a report published by the Montana Natural History Center.
