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

Since 1960s, NASA engineers have worked to reduce aircraft noise and produce technology such as the chevrons who are now used on commercial jet engines. With this Sound Effects Activity, students construct an amplifier that illustrates various prinicples of sound. Learn about motion, forces, transfer of energy and matter. 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 including NASA's newest X-plane, the X-59 QueSST, and the research on Quiet Supersonic Flight.
