This was the introductory event of the club and it took place on 15th August, on Independence day in LH 301 and LH 302 halls of lecture hall complex.
This event was attended by 150+ students mostly consisting of 1st Year B.Tech. and 1st Year M.Tech. students with a minority of Btech sophomores and PhD students. To accommodate the large audience, teams of 2 were formed amongst students, something that actually acted as a huge morale booster, as friends worked together to realize their designs.
For the first one hour all the participants were taught about basics of Aerodynamics, wing theory, design and structure of a glider. This was followed by 3 hours of hands-on session to Design, Build and Testing out the gliders.To add a problem statement in the mix, students were challenged to make their glider fly across the Lecture Hall Foyer, and through to Shirucafe, a feat that 9 teams were able to accomplish.
