SGT@OSU Hosts First Review AAE 2201 Review Session

On February 7, members of SGT@OSU hosted a review session for AAE 2201 Introduction to Aerospace Engineering II students at Ohio State. Members answered questions and presented practice problems and conceptual reviews to help prepare students for their midterm on concepts of aircraft stability. Review materials, including a review packet containing much of the information discussed, can be found at our Resources for Students page. The session was well attended and SGT hopes to present more review sessions for midterms and general questions throughout the semester and beyond. Those who attended and are interested in helping us to improve our review sessions can provide feedback at sgt.osu@gmail.com or through our survey here.

SGT at OSU Hosts AAE 2200 Final Review

As part of its goal to provide academic services to new aerospace students at Ohio State, members of SGT at OSU hosted a review session for students taking AAE 2200 Introduction to Aerospace Engineering. This review session was the first step in the SGT plan to re-engage in tutoring and review sessions for introductory aerospace classes at Ohio State. SGT members answered questions from students and presented practice problems to give students another opportunity to see the material before their final. This is intended to be the first of several review sessions coinciding with AAE 2200/2201 exams this year and provided some key lessons that will allow SGT to improve tutoring and review sessions in the future. SGT wishes to thank all in attendance, and all comments to help us improve future review sessions can be directed to sgt.osu@gmail.com.

SGT at OSU Gets New Faculty Adviser

SGT at OSU Hosts First “Paper” Airplane Contest

This week SGT at OSU hosted a glider-building contest in Scott Laboratory at The Ohio State University open to any interested student. Participants built their craft from materials including paper and balsa wood under a time limit and then went into the Scott Lab courtyard to test their creations. Participants also enjoyed pizza courtesy of SGT. Gliders were judged based on the maximum distance achieved through three trial flights, and the top finishers were rewarded with prizes. SGT at OSU wishes to congratulate the winners and all of our participants!
