This curriculum guide is based on 2 years of lectures and projects of a contemporary, special-interest aerospace program for promising students, ages 15-19. The program uses technical lectures, project activities and field trips to introduce students to the real engineering world of pioneering aerospace achievement, and the variety of skills and careers it involves. This book can be used as a curriculum resource for high school and college teachers, and may be helpful to curriculum committees and textbook writers. Teachers in various disciplines can use selected chapters to enrich or supplement regular courses, including applied mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology.
