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.
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 professional research and design presentation. Earning the final badge allows students to apply for 2 mechanical engineering credits from the University of Washington Bothell. As well as downloading and submitting work online, students will arrange times to work in the Institute of Flight's 3D Makerspace in order to use some of the equipment there.
$320 for Institute of Flight members (take a look at our memberships!)
$350 for non-members
