drone Flight science

Participants of this workshop will learn physics concepts like four forces of flight, how drones work, and various functions of the electronic components that make up a drone.


It is very fun. I am very interested in drones and this helped me to control a drone better. I also learn about how a vehicle can hover above ground and water.
