AIR FORCE BASE STEM ASSEMBLY

Colonel Art Huber (Ret.) came to HSA-Cincy to demonstrate how STEM relates to real world applications. 

He spoke to students in 5th-8th grade about the science, technology, and engineering of G-Forces and Mach Speeds in relation to fighter jets, missile launching, and hitting targets with accuracy in the Air Force. 

Col. Huber shared some videos of fighter jets launching their missiles and hitting targets while explaining the mathematical formulas used to be able to hit targets.  He also provided examples of how radar technology is used by police officers to catch speeding cars.  Col. Huber let the students hold and try on his pressure suit and helmet that pilots use when they fly their jets to overcome the G-Forces they feel when they fly.
