Landing a Really Fast Plane on a Really Big Boat

October 18, 2017 | 11:00am - 11:30am

A peek into the 2017-2018 season of STEM in 30, a fast-paced, interactive classroom program.

Landing a plane is difficult under normal circumstances. Imagine landing a super fast plane on a moving runway. Oh, and the runway is also very short! That's what it's like to land on an aircraft carrier. Not only is math and science required to do this, but there’s also the coordination of a massive crew of people who makes it happen. Learn about the math, science, and human element it takes to land on and launch off an aircraft carrier.
