Workshop Details

No. of days: 1

Team Strength: 2 per team

Certification: TM Aerosports

An ornithopter is an aircraft that flies by flapping its wings. Designers seek to imitate the flapping-wing flight of birds, bats, and insects. Though machines may differ in form, they are usually built on the same scale as these flying creatures. Manned ornithopters have also been built, and some have been successful.
Because ornithopters can be made to resemble birds or insects, they could be used for military applications such as aerial reconnaissance without alerting the enemies that they are under surveillance. Several ornithopters have been flown with video cameras on board, some of which can hover and maneuver in small spaces.

Overview
The workshop spans for 1 day* which includes the theory, hands-on, fabrication, and testing sessions. No pre-requisites are required to attend this workshop. Our training pattern caters to need of beginners as well as professionals and graduates. Participants will learn all the basics and also the advanced concepts.
Outcome
Participants, at the end of the workshop, will be thorough with the concepts, technology, and hardware taught to them during the Ornithopter workshop. With the knowledge and experience they gather at the workshop, the students will be capable of doing not only an Ornithopter, but also different interesting and innovative projects on their own from scratch.
Scope
Hands-on training is always two steps ahead in making the students understand the concepts of engineering than regular classrooms. This practical insight into the subjects they study makes them more and more confident and thus makes it easy for them to gain a good position in a company. Our workshops are not just about certificates. We aim at making each and every student capable and confident enough to excel in the corporate world. Our workshops provide an edge to the students.
Certification
The Ornithopter workshop is certified by TM Aerosports. All the participants would be getting a certificate of participation. Top performing teams will get a certificate of merit. The performance would be evaluated during the workshop through interactive sessions and competitions. The workshop coordinators will be given a certificate of appreciation.
