It’s fun to throw a Boomerang, just like Mowgli did. The unique body and curves of a Boomerang make it the only projectile that can fly parallel to the ground and defy gravity!
In this Boomerang making and testing workshop, we teach you everything you want to know about boomerangs. Participate in this workshop to know about the physics, manufacturing techniques and throwing tricks of a Boomerang. Its easy, its fun and rest assured you will have the time of your life while playing with it!
Design, build and test your own Boomerang
Learn physics behind lift generation in Boomerang
The workshop has the following modules.
Lecture: Introduction to the physics behind Boomerangs
Design Session: The participants would design their own boomerangs.

Students interested in Boomerang Design
"The lecture is very good in regards of giving the knowledge of aerodynamics and aero foil shape also provides the idea of pressure difference in a flying objects. All concepts were cleared. A little amount of hard work gives us a good Boomerang. This is a new experience for me to make a Boomerang".
