The NASA Educator Professional Development Collaborative at
Texas State University is providing a 1-hour webinar.

Explore the application of the Engineering Design Process (EDP) by designing an X-plane Glider that meets specific design criteria and constraints. This EDP is similar to the process that NASA engineers use when designing a new aircraft. Also in this presentation we will take a look back at the history of X-Planes and NASA Aeronautical Research while also looking forward to the future of NASA Aeronautics Innovation. For decades NASA has been studying aircraft noise in order to reduce noise emissions. Come learn about NASA's newest X-plane, the X-59 QueSST, and the research on Quiet Supersonic Flight with the activity X-Plane glider design challenge.
