Air Camp Students Visit Parachute Museum

The Parachute Museum had some special visitors, or should I say special students, this past week. Air Camp gives the campers a chance to study not only air craft but decelerator systems as well. The students were tasked with designing their own parachute after visiting the ATI Parachute Museum during their morning session and then in the afternoon session they heard from expert Andrew Kididis on the real science behind it all and were assessed on how well they did, according to Parachute Museum curator Randy Zuercher.
