“I was having a hobby of making paper planes in my childhood. I used make paper planes from my notebook pages, I still love making planes but with technical aspects.” Is this what your mind thinks when you see a plane? then IIT Bombay techfest IC engine workshop is for you.
Organisers K. Sunilkumar and Atreya Chattergee told me that “The workshop has been divided into three days. On the very first day we taught them very basics of an aircraft. All required material is provided by IIT only.” “The total cost for the workshop is 16000 Rs with remote control and 13000 Rs without remote control per team, where a single team can have maximum 5 members.” Co-ordinator Arun added.
