February 13th- Ron Blum- Making Basic Aerodynamics Fun!

Basic Aerodynamics

Come, participate and get involved in upbeat, active learning!  Not all engineers are dull and boring … really!  Ron is a Type A engineer, which even he says is a dangerous combination.   This Senior Thursday program will teach and even demythify some basic aerodynamic common knowledge.  What you learned in school may or may not have been updated since you’ve learned it.  Aerodynamics haven’t changed since the beginning of time, but our understanding of it definitely has.

This presentation is based on the colorful posters in KAM’s Learning Center and Classroom and which are used on outreach programs, too.  These posters were created by Ron Blum, founder of Blue on Top LLC.  Come see.  Bring questions.  Learning can be FUN!
