Students from Demonstration School, University of Phayao won the four quarter-final winners in Fablab Thailand Student Design and Engineering Project Competition 2020

Students from Demonstration School, University of Phayao won the four quarter-final winners in FABLAB Thailand Student Design and Engineering Project Competition 2020 in the topic of "Innovative Ideas for the Community" by inventing a "Wildfire Survey Aircraft" to reduce the occurrence of smog caused by wildfires, finishing in the first four of the 173 teams nationwide. The team consists of  Senior Students in Science Classrooms in University-Affiliated School Project, Mr. Apichet Kamsuwat, Mr. Phattharaphat Phattharapakorn and Mr. Kunanon Charoendee, along with Mr. Sarit Promthep, Project Advisor and Lecturer of the Demonstration School, University of Phayao.

 

Mr. Apichet Khamsuwat, Student from the Demonstration School, University of Phayao said that "The idea of this project started from the school and the community, experiencing dust and smog, which was caused by wildfires, so we figured out how to invent a wildfire survey plane, to warn us of wildfire, in the terms of the inspiration for choosing the aircraft as a tool because it uses only single motor and cheap price, and the reason for choosing the aircraft in model “Cesna172” because it has a big container for more loading, and everyone loves it and doing this project with fun and happy.

Mr. Sarit Promthep, Project Advisor and Lecturer of the Demonstration School, University of Phayao said that "Starting this project, a Wildfire Survey Aircraft, started by finding a mutual agreement between teachers and students, without forcing student during this project. It takes a lot of experience to create aircraft and many times of flight testing. For the major problem of us with the first version was not as smooth as it should be. Each person is lack of inexperience, so it needs to seek some advises from the expert such as RC Aircraft Clubs to study the techniques of creating various aviation for completion our aircraft. "

For this time to build the aircraft. Demonstration School, University of Phayao has a fabrication lab or FABLAB with the aim of developing the skills of Thai student and youth to be the inventor by creating a wildfire survey aircraft. The FABLAB room is a room that supports the aircraft design and assembly using laser cutting machines, 3D printers and various equipment tools. Moreover, advisor and lecturer give the consult for measurement programming for enhancing the efficiency learning of student.
