PII: THE SWAN

Humble origins to amazing second prototype. The build party on Saturday March 23, 2019 was a huge success for an amazing group of 5th graders.

Here they are from start to finish.

On the Ground Ready

In the below video, you’ll notice he is a much better motor than the one we have but his mother insisted we replace him with something electronic. I guess she wanted him back?!

So we gave her a motor….. It’s loud, it’s mean but it’s all hers.

Here is ‘The Swan’ under her own power — first solo mission.

The Swan at rest

Now we have more work to do… there are several math issues to deal with, some engineering problems, the science of autonomous behavior … the list goes on and on. This group is ready for it though!
