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 begins with an elaborate lecture on bird flight, moves on to design and fabrication sessions and ends with testing/competition, thereby providing a complete learning experience to the participants.
