Welcome to Epics AAEE
We are the Purdue EPICS Team dedicated to bringing Purdue Space Day to 7th and 8th grade students!
Aero and Astro Enginnering Education (AAEE) is a team of students in the Engineering Project in Community Service (EPICS) program at Purdue University. As an EPICS team, AAEE has a mission: to design, build, and deploy real systems to solve engineering-based problems for local community service and education organizations. Our AAEE team specializes in educational products which illustrate the principles of aerodynamics, aeronautic design, flight, and propulsion.
AAEE team members apply a Design-Build-Test-Deploy-Support principle to their projects. Through this process, we will gain communication skills, experience on multidisciplinary teams, and project management and leadership skills.
Currently, AAEE team members are working on three interactive educational activities: the Solar Sail and Mars Rover activities, which will be deployed at Purdue Space Day, and a wind-tunnel display for Lafayette's own Imagination Station.
Our project partner is Purdue Space Day. We work alongside the Space Day team to create activities and exhibits which provide students with opportunities to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math.
