As part of their Drones elective Year 8 students have been building kites over the past few weeks as a way of learning about Aerodynamics. Students used plastic materials to create their kites and took to the oval this week to launch their designs.
The elective focuses on constructing, modifying and flying drones, and encompasses aerodynamics, electronics, design, and modelling skills. Next week students will be taking out Drones to fly. Drones, have been adopted as an affordable means of capturing video and photographs, conducting land surveys, for military operations, and Australia Post has even trialled using them to deliver parcels.
