Another great camp! The kids had fun engineering their own planes and then taking them out for a test flight. Big thank you to Nicholas Butts, Engineer, for volunteering to be our guest speaker for our Engineering Camp! Also, Fargo Air Museum would like to thank Appareo for being a sponsor for September's Youth Aviation Camp!

Saturday, Sept. 10th - Engineering

Students will have an opportunity to visit with an engineer with an aviation background who will share his knowledge about the science and technology concerned with the design, building, and use of engines, machines and structures. Learn about the work an engineer does and the tools utilized. Learn about the engineers who made - and continue to make - aviation engineering possible. Explore how aviation has been an engineering achievement that has had a major impact on society. Discover different career opportunities in engineering.
