/Class Outline
In the first half of the semester, participants draw the lines plan of a small cargo ship and learn about the method of drawing curved surfaces of a solid object. They learn about how to evaluate ship hydrostatics and draw the hydrostatic curves, too. In the second half, a model of a radio-controlled glider is originally designed and manufactured . The design skills based on the vehicle and environmental systems and the ability of project performance are cultivated.
