Taking inspiration from the Born to Engineer video from Angelo Grubisic, an aeronautical engineer who combines his love for engineering with a passion for extreme sports., this resource supports students to increase their understanding of flight and how engineers use nature to inspire their ideas. Students will have the opportunity to build, test and evaluate their own creations.
This video should be used alongside the resource. It shows how Angelo Grubisic combined his love of wingsuit BASE jumping with his engineering knowledge to develop the world's most scientifically engineered wingsuit.
