Sign up for Fall AMP 2016 Here!
AMP, the Aerospace Maker Project, offers students in grades 9 - 12 the opportunity to find answers to the question “How are Aircraft Made?” AMP student-makers will work in teams to gain skills and complete tasks in the areas of 3D modeling and 3D printing, materials science, engineering design, professional communication, aircraft manufacturing, and career planning, all while having fun and earning college credit. Lessons are taught after school in the Future of Flight Makerspace, and assignments are downloaded and submitted through our online interface.
We are seeking students and teams from local high schools, both public and private, youth-serving organizations, and other interested groups to participate. Teams are expected to stay engaged from beginning to end and meet for all weekly classes at the Future of Flight.
Weekdays 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the Makerspace *
Fall and Winter sessions:
AMP 2016 is currently re-evaluating its schedule for the needs of its students! If you wish to sign up or want more information during this time, please email Makers@FutureOfFlight.org!
Every Wednesday and Thursday from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. in the Makerspace *
(Mondays 3:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. the Makerspace is open to all, and enrolled AMP students may work in the space for free)
* Students who are going to be absent, or more than 10 minutes late, are expected to let the instructor know!
Students download and upload assignments using the online iRemix platform. As they progress, participants earn electronic badges, some of which represent collections of skills that can be put on a résumé. The students' Final Project is a competitive research and design presentation. The final earned badge allows students to apply for 1 college engineering credit from the University of Washington. Because work may be downloaded and submitted online, it is possible for students who need to miss a few particular lessons to catch back up with the group.
$145 for Institute of Flight members (take a look at our memberships!)
$195 for non-members
