Maker Faire

Herkie : The Flying Pterosaur

Type: Maker Table/Exhibit
Program Area: Engineering

Day/Time: Saturday and Sunday

Location: Cypress Fun House

We will show the Pterosaur replica that we built for the National Geogrpahic Documentary SkyMonsters. The flying Pterosaur has a wing span of three meters and it reflects current research in aeronautics. We will display the actual replica and provide details of inside components and discuss challenges faced during the project. We hope this exciting project might compel others to study engineering.
