Studying the Physics of Flight at the Reno Air Races
Students enjoyed pleasant weather and minimal crowds as they explored the Reno International air Races this past week.
Not a bad way to kick off our intensive at all! Students enjoyed pleasant weather and minimal crowds as they explored the Reno International Air Races this past week. While there, they were able to interact with pilots and aircraft, all the while capturing content for the films they will be creating as a final product. Some highlights included: unrestricted access to the pits, where students were able to get up close to some of the amazing vintage aircraft on display, touring through military aircraft on static display including a C-17, C-130, and Ch-47, watching the amazing capabilities of an F-16 as it flew low and just below the speed of sound.
We were impressed with the responsibility that the students displayed, as they were able to interview some pilots and gain a deeper understanding of the future of flight. At the end of the day, they were able to reflect on the progress they made with capturing content, facts they learned about the aviation industry, as well as the responsibility they displayed during the event.
