“Magic or Math?" Math in the Aerospace Industry


December 14, 2018

Safran engineer discusses the role of math in developing cabin solutions 

As a leading innovator, Safran is committed to inspiring future scientists and engineers by supporting local educational projects across the United States. For the past few years, Safran has lent its support to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s (NASM) STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program, which encourages young students to aspire to technical careers in aviation and space.

This year, Safran sponsored NASM's “STEM in 30” interactive classroom program, which consists of 30-minute webcasts that engage middle school students in STEM topics.  In addition to sponsoring the December episode entitled "Magic or Math? Math in the Aerospace Industry," Safran also was featured among the experts discussing real world applications of math.

The Safran-sponsored episode, which aired on December 13, features Corey Williams, Product Development Engineer at Safran Cabin. In the video, Williams explains how Safran Cabin uses math when designing overhead luggage bins at its headquarters in Huntington Beach, California.
