Aero-News Quote of the Day
"One must learn by doing the thing; for though you think
you know it, you have no certainty until you try."
Source: Sophocles (circa 496 BC-405 BC.) While
it's unlikely the ancient Greek philosopher had aviation on his

DOE's "Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists" office.
The "Real World Design Challenge" will offer students and teachers
the opportunity to work alongside engineers and scientists at all
of DOE's National Labs with support from industry mentors, and gain
real-world experience by using the latest CAD/CAM design software,
online project collaboration systems, and fluid dynamic modeling
software to work on green aircraft design.
