Is work as an entry level aerospace engineer hands-on and experimental or hands-off observational?

I am a high school junior, and I am really considering pursuing a degree/career in aerospace engineering. I love physics and math. I am just worried about how much I'll actually like the work that aerospace engineers do.
If you are worried that you may not love aerospace engineering in the future, mechanical engineering may be worth considering (Disclaimer, I was a MechE). The two curriculums tend to be very similar, with aerospace engineers having some more focused classes than mechanical engineers. I felt that my mechanical engineering curriculum allowed for students to pick many classes and really tailor their education. This flexibility will definitely help you change your mind if you decide the aerospace industry isn't for you!
