For students of the Academy of Aerospace and Engineering, or anyone else looking for a summer activity, Sikorsky Aircraft is sponsoring a contest to design a “green” helicopter. The contest runs from June 1 to October 15, 2015 and is open to 9 to 16 year olds. I will plan to give my students time to work on this contest this fall in our Innovations in Aerospace class, but you can get a head start by looking into it and researching and brainstorming ideas now. Good luck!
On a side note, for Academy students, remember to start your IXL summer prep for Algebra I (H) in Academy of Aerospace & Engineering summer math assignment in IXL.com by the beginning of August. Remember that this assignment is in place of the one in your summer packet that was handed out to all students. You do need to complete the language arts assignment in the packet. Contact Mr. Holmes with any questions.
