Defying Gravity: Aerospace Innovation Teen Science Cafe

Thursday, April 17, 2014 @ 5:30 PM-7:30 PM


Featured Speakers: Drs. Sridhar Condoor and K. Ravindra, St. Louis University, Parks College of Engineering, Aviation and Technology

Join engineers and grad students from SLU’s Parks College of Engineering as they take us on a tour of the aerospace engineering labs! Experience a wind turbine, see metal get pulled apart, and watch a ping pong ball smash a piece of balsa wood using just the power of atmospheric pressure. These labs are full of amazing tools. While you’re having fun, you will also learn about areas of research and career paths. Don’t miss this chance to be blown away (literally, in front of the wind turbine)!

FREE and OPEN to Junior Academy of Science members and middle and high school students. Registration required.
