It’s Never Too Early to Start Learning

Explore the world of aerospace:  scientists, engineers and many other people create airplanes, rockets and satellites using science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Science is essential to understanding the world around us.
Branches of science important to aerospace include physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology and biology.

The use and development of technology are inseparable from aerospace endeavors.

Engineers conceive, develop, build and test systems.  They apply science and mathematics to create novel solutions to challenging problems.

Mathematics is foundational to engineering, science, and technology.  Oh, yeah, math is used in art as well.
