TEDxCanberra - Michael Engemann and Damien Tonkin - Building a rescue UAV

Damien and Michael are year 12 stu?dents from Dick?son Col?lege in Can?berra. They are design?ing, build?ing and fly?ing UAVs to deliver life-saving res?cue sup?plies to lost tourists stranded in the outback. In this short talk at TEDxCanberra 2011, they use humour and bravado to discuss how being involved in the UAV Outback challenge as an extra-curricular activity has led to learning new things, discovering untapped talent and doing things they had never imagined. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations).
