Description: Thermal Science laboratory is the third course in the sequence of four mechanical engineering laboratories offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University. The course is one credit hour, meeting once a week for two hours. The course includes selected experiments on heat transfer and thermodynamics. In an effort to give students a combination of theoretical background and hands-on experience, a new experiment on gas turbine engine was introduced. This paper describes the experiences the students gained in this experiment. During this laboratory the students actually learned how to operate a turbojet engine, collected and analyzed the output data including thrust and efficiency, and related the experimental result to the theory learned in the thermodynamics course. This experiment complemented the thermal science laboratory course and fully integrated some aspects of thermodynamics and enhanced the students learning process.
