Science Saturday - Helicopter Aerodynamics!

Posted by SeekonkLibrary

Our Science Saturday program is back with a brand new topic – helicopter aerodynamics! Civil Air Patrol educator Oscar Orringer will lead this program over three weeks in October. Students will learn how helicopters and quadcopters operate, build their own helicopters, see a demonstration of how “lift” works, and have a contest to see who has the fastest helicopter!

Science Saturdays are on 10/6, 10/20 and 10/27. Register once for all three sessions. This program is recommended for students in grades 4 and above (parental assistance recommended for younger students).
