What is this workshop about?

An Ornithopter (from Greek Ornithos "bird" and Petron "wing"), a bio-mimicry of birds, bats and insects, is an aircraft that flies by using the same mechanism as birds: flapping its wings instead of using engines for propulsion like most of the modern day aerodynamic models.

This workshop encompasses all the concepts and principles involved in the aerodynamics of an Ornithopter. The workshop provides a complete learning experience to the participants.

Course Outcomes

  • Certification from Ornithopter Zone, USA
  • Build and test your own rubber-powered Ornithopter.
  • Understand the principles of Flight of a bird.
  • Design a mechanism that imitates a Bird
  • Competition for Longest Flight

Lecture was very interesting and entertaining one. I had only theoretical knowledge about the bird flight but this workshop has provided me with practical knowledge by making an ornithopter of our own which i liked very much.
