Johnny’s Airport Adventure Project Description
Johnny's Airport Adventure was developed by the Ultra-Efficient Engine Technology (UEET) Program at NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, to promote an interest in airplanes and air transportation in the young student. This educator guide consists of seven activities including a storyboard and role-play activity. The storyboard focuses on introducing K–4 students to airport and aircraft terminology including the identification of vari- ous engine types. The accompanying role-play story of Johnny's Airport Adventure takes children on a pretend trip to the airport and then on an airplane from Cleveland to San Diego, California. Complete with cutout characters, labels, and aircraft, Johnny's Airport Adventure Educator's Guide also includes worksheets and a list of suggested props to use with the role-playing activity.
The UEET project is NASA's turbine engine technology program dedicated to continuing the long- standing leadership role played by NASA in developing and transferring technologies required by U.S. manufacturers. The technologies being developed will enable U.S. companies to design future generations of commercial gas turbine engines that will be leaders in the world aerospace marketplace. The future engines that benefit from these technologies will be cleaner burning and more fuel efficient than current aircraft engines.
