Physics of Fun

Physics of Fun

As children, we are able to explore and imagine limitless possibilities. Allow me to return you to your childhood, showing you the power of learning through fun.

The process of building a quadcopter and exploring the mechanical, electrical and mathematical aspects will inspire creativity... and we have proof of this through our work with local school children and the STEM program.
