Video Title:
Copters, Choppers and the Phrog: The Science of Vertical Flight - STEM in 30
Description:
The idea of vertical flight has been around for a long time. As early as 400 BC, Chinese kids were playing with bamboo flying toys. In the 1480s, Leonardo da Vinci made the first recorded advancement in vertical flight when he sketched his aerial screw. We have come a long way since then! This episode of STEM in 30 will explore helicopters: their design, how they work, and the functions they play in our society. Find more STEM in 30: airandspace.si.edu/stemin30
