Kite forces

There are many forces acting on a kite to keep it in the air. These forces are lift, drag, gravity and tension.
Lift is created when the wind pushes and overcomes the force of gravity. This pressure pushes the kite higher into the air. When the lift force is greater than the force of gravity, the kite will continue to climb higher and higher. When the force of gravity is stronger than lift, then the kite will start being pulled down to the ground. When the lift force and gravity force is equal, the kite will stay static in the air.

Drag is the force pushing the kite backwards. This force is created by the wind and is pulling the kite backwards. But at the same time, there is force against the drag force. This force is caused tension. Tension pulls the rope towards you or the thing the rope is tied to.

Robotics Report

On the 9th of November the EPS Robotics teams went to Baulkham Hills North Public School to attend the First Lego League competition. The Robotics teams learned many different skills including teamwork, never give up, gracious professionalism and try our very best. Everyone enjoyed their time at Baulkham Hills North Public School and we look forward to the next robotics competition next year. Our robotics team 1 placed 10th out of 27 and team 2 placed 13th out of 27 on their robots table challenge. The project research team on hydro dynamics did very well too.

“I learned that teamwork and hard work are the key to success.” Amaaya Chowdhury 5G
