SciTech Tuesday: Calling All Navigators!
The Education Department has been collecting WWII-era aircraft “computers” used by aviators to navigate planes. Air navigation computers demonstrate the concepts of pressure, density, distance, and velocity by coupling logarithmic and linear scales. These artifacts provide a context and setting for students to explore physics, chemistry, and math and help to get kids excited about STEM topics.
We need your help! Look at the pictures below. Did you use one of these computers or know specific information about how they were used? Please email email@example.com. Any information will help us to design meaningful educational programs for students of all ages!
