Taking Flight: A Look at the Science Behind the Next Generation of Airplanes

Graciously hosted by Ellie Halevy and Larry Kalman

Aircraft technology has come a long way since Wilbur and Orville Wright’s Kitty Hawk. But you might be surprised at just how far. Join us for a special program with Technion Professor Daniella Raveh and hear how she and her team are leading the way in aerospace innovation. Prof. Raveh will talk about her award-winning, 3D-printed test airplane, built to experiment with designs that would make aircraft more aerodynamic and environmentally friendly, as well as the latest research she and her team are working on.

Prof. Raveh’s work in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, which is often referred to as a mini-NASA, is yet another example of the Technion’s outsized impact on shaping technologies of the future.
