Science on Saturday events are fun, free science demonstrations at Lincoln Laboratory and are given several times each school year by volunteer scientists and engineers. All local community children aged 5-17 years old, their parents, and their teachers are welcome to attend these events.
Saturday, June 5, 10:00 a.m.
Aviation Today, presesnted by Caroline Lamb, MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Aviation brings the world closer together: commercial airlines help people travel the world; NOAA, NASA, and the Air Force use aircraft to make observations about the world around us; and FEMA uses aircraft to assist in disaster relief efforts. Several technologies used for these purposes trace their heritage to MIT and Lincoln Laboratory. We’ll talk about this history and how the Laboratory uses (and modifies) aircraft today to enable research into tomorrow’s technologies.
UAVs at the ASDF, presented by Mark Mazumder and Joseph St. Germain, MIT Lincoln Laboratory
The Autonomous Systems Development Facility (ASDF) at Lincoln Laboratory enables the rapid development and testing of autonomous systems for unmanned air, ground, and maritime efforts. We'll peek behind the scenes to see a few unique features of the facility. We will discuss how Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs, or drones) are used for wildlife conservation, rapid medical response, safety inspections, sports, and cinematography, and how we might use UAVs in the future!
We are now offering Science on Saturday demonstrations in a virtual format, so there's no need to register! Tune in to join the fun!
