STEM Camp Brings Flight to Old Airport

The Florida State University STEM Camp brought some flying activity to the old Bay County Airport Thursday.

Students got a chance to practice their flying skills on planes they built.

The science, technology, engineering and math camp is helping introduce students to elements involved in the science of flight.

They covered the physics and theory of aircraft construction and were eventually introduced to flight control through the use of radio controlled model planes.

"Today (Thursday) the idea is to practice flight so that we can work with a navigation piece to deliver a humanitarian package to specific location so that's part of our mission," said Mandeville Smith with the camp.

Friday, the students will try to solve a navigational problem.
