When a diverse, multidisciplinary organization gets mobilized around a common objective magical things can happen. At Farnsworth we see magic happen every time one of our kids gets into a flight simulator for the first time or has that light bulb moment in LEGO robotics.
Solving problems is a lot of fun if you have the right skill set. The Aerospace Technology department is where we take the principles from our classrooms to apply them.
Our robust engineering program puts hands directly on problems to solve them.
Our remarkable flight simulator lab challenges us with state-of the-art, real-world flight experiences.
Out of this world field trips and guest speakers ranging from engineers to astronauts expose us to the wide range of disciplines and possibilities that an aerospace focus offers.
Our Aerospace Technology Department implements a strong standards based curriculum including:
- Flight Simulators
- Engineering Classes (Project Lead the Way)
- Flight Site
- LEGO Robotics
- Aerospace Field Trips
- Guest Speakers
