Airport & Fountain Run By: Laura, Nijah, Rachel, and Samhita
Introducing Ourselves Laura 13 year old Going into 8 th grade Nijah 11 year old Going into 7 th grade Rachel 14 year old Going into 9 th grade Samhita 11 year old Going into 7 th grade
Overview We went to the airport to answer the question: What makes planes fly? (This would help to build our balsa wood planes) We learned about how the wing positioning, plane shape, etc. affects how the plane flies To let go of some tension, we went to one of Purdues larger fountains and had some fun!
The Airport We went to a room in the airport and made paper airplanes to see what components would change how the plane flew We went to the hangar to look at some airplanes (This was to see what consists of an airplane)
Learned We learned that a plane must have: A minimized Drag and Mass An average Lift and Thrust A good center of gravity It has to be dihedral
Fountain Run After the wonderful 45 minute walk in the blazing heat, we finally got a good chance to bond with one another while having fun and cooling down We went around the fountain trying to hug it, get soaked, squirt water at each other, and many other crazy things! We were having so much fun that some other people on campus joined the party!
Final Thoughts We would like to thank our counselors Chelsea, Maria, Benny, and Lillian. And we would also like to thank Ms. Good, Ms. Donald, and Ms. Clark. Not to mention, our instructors Ms. Kim and Ms. Susan. We all thank Purdue for all of their efforts. We all thank our parents for putting in the time and money and hard work to get us here, and for letting us come. We recommend this camp to anyone who is ready for some FUN!!!
