Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Design of a Human-Powered Flying Machine

A student would investigate some of the physics and the mechanisms that allow birds to fly. A comparative analysis would then be conducted between various birds to discover why some are better flyers than others (e.g. peregrine falcon vs. turkey). Using this knowledge, the student would then design a theoretical device to enable human-powered flight.
