The NDSU Extension Service is giving youth an opportunity to learn about aerospace. NDSU Extension, along with the North Dakota 4-H Foundation and University of North Dakota School of Aerospace Sciences, is hosting a program April 28-29 in Grand Forks for youth 12 to 15 years old.
The 2013 4-H Aerospace Event will be held at the UND School of Aerospace Sciences. Participants will learn the basics of aircraft structure, navigation, aerodynamics and air traffic control; discover careers in aerospace science; take the controls in a digital aircraft simulator; attend a radio-controlled plane presentation; tour the UND Aerospace facility; and build and launch rockets.
The registration fee is $35, which includes materials, lodging, an evening meal April 28, a continental breakfast April 29 and a snack. Youth must be accompanied by a chaperone who is required to register and pay the same fee. One chaperone should accompany every four or five youth.
The registration deadline is April 9. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
