Upcoming Events at Future of Flight
The Aerospace Maker Project Summer 2017 rolling admission is now open!
- Students can begin work starting on June 1st
- Projects must be completed by September 1st
Student-makers in AMP work alone and in teams to earn college credit and answer the central question, “How are aircraft made?” They use the skills they learn to create physical objects and show their final projects as a professional presentation. High school students interested in manufacturing, aerospace, materials science, design, or 3D printing are invited to participate.
This course involves both on-site instruction and remote submission of work to our social platform. Students create a portfolio of their progress, share their ideas with peers, and get feedback from the instructor while they work. Students work primarily through our online interface, and have access to our instructors and makerspace on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, choosing which days during the summer work best for them to complete their projects.
Financial aid is available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a financial aid form before purchasing your AMP spot.
AMP is accredited by the University of Washington, Bothell for two mechanical engineering credits, and is supported by NSF grant #1322512
