Exploring in Aeronautics. An Introduction to Aeronautical Sciences.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Cleveland, OH. Lewis Research Center.
This curriculum guide is based on a year of lectures and projects of a contemporary special-interest Explorer program intended to provide career guidance and motivation for promising students interested in aerospace engineering and scientific professions. The adult-oriented program avoids technicality and rigorous mathematics and stresses real life involvement through project activity and teamwork. Teachers in high schools and colleges will find this a useful curriculum resource, with many topics in various disciplines which can supplement regular courses. Curriculum committees, textbook writers and hobbyists will also find it relevant. The materials may be used at college level for introductory courses, or modified for use with vocationally oriented high school student groups. Seventeen chapters are supplemented with photographs, charts, and line drawings. A related document is available as VT 014 596. (CD)
