Presenters: Timothy Spafford , Vladimir Ramos-Vasquez , Michael Miller , Jaime Lord , Frederick Hole , Casey-Ellen Collette , Louis Caponi , Rachel Stagnitti

Presentation Description

This presentation provides an overview of how jet engines operate, describing each main component within the system. It also explores the vigorous testing processes that these engines must undergo, as well as the various uses for jet engines.

Learning Outcomes

This presentation teaches students how the different components of an engine and how they work together to produce the thrust that propels the jet forward, as well as the importance of testing. The hands-on teaches the students how to calculate RPMs and use the engineering design process to design mini-turbines.
