Flight Dynamics - Engineering Projects

Alissa Anderson on Wednesday, 07 December 2011. Posted in Coursework, Women at RIT

The life of an engineering student at RIT is full of calculus homework and group projects. My key to survival is to (is possible) pick a project topic you are going to be excited about for the ten week course duration. For my thermofluids team - we decided to reconnect with our childhood and we will be analyzing the flight dynamics of Nerf Darts and looking for ways to improve their flight stability and performance.  Hopefully it turns out to be exciting as it sounds! I will keep you posted.  - Once an engineer, always an engineer.
