Patrick Kao (right) of Menlo-Atherton High School and Andrew Land of La Entrada Middle School both took home Grand Prizes for their age groups in the “Engineering and Computer Applications” category at the San Francisco Bay Area Science Fair held earlier this month..
They will go on to compete in the California State Science Fair in Los Angeles on May 23–24.
Both Andrew and Patrick did their science fair projects on multicopters.
Andrew focused on a more effective landing system for the multicopter with a project titled “The Last 3 Meters: Development of a Multi-Sensor Method for Safe Multicopter Landings.”
Patrick focused on multicopter flight stability with a project titled “Stabilizing a High-Power Quadcopter.”
