How do we make learning Aerodynamics real for our students? With wind tunnels, vacuum forming, slot cars and some fun of course! The Engineering unit on Aerodynamics was introduced by playing with slot cars. Students learned principles of acceleration by developing equations to cars crash and become airborne. Next, a visit to the WPI Wind Tunnel Lab helped them see how various car shapes impact aerodynamics. A skype call with a Specialized bike engineer furthered their knowlege With that knowledge at hand, students began building vacuums for their wind tunnel projects. In the end, they bring aero testing to slot car design using model cars formed with clay or 3D printer.
