Lesson 3 on Aeronautical Engineering: HISTORY, continued (November 7 and 8)

Please read the ALL of the background information below, before beginning this Assignment. Then begin the Assignment contained in the Blue box. Read all of the instructions first, before proceeding.

Work on the assignment INDIVIDUALLY (do not collaborate with other students). There is a collaborative element in our study of Aeronautical Engineering, but NOT this assignment.

Objectives: (1) To introduce students to the history of aviation and aeronautical/aerospace engineering from the first airplane to the present day; (2) To practice note taking (3) To improve research skills–seeking appropriate sources for citation; (4) To improve verbal presentation skills, in order to clearly express ideas.
