Project Entomopter
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
Region:Chignecto East
City:River John, NS
School:River John Consoladated
Abstract:An entomopter is a mechanical replica of a flying insect. My entomopter design is based upon a dragonfly because a dragonfly propels itself like no other arthropod. Project Entomopter investigates building a life size mechanical dragonfly, shows how inexpensively this can be done and explores many uses for such a device.
