History, science and art of boomerangs

This is a class for anthropologists, artists, scientists, woodworkers and anyone interested in flying toys. A selection of ethnographic artifacts, fine art and high technology boomerangs will be shown and their story will be told. The science behind the high tech boomerangs will be explained by an aerospace engineer.


I have been a collector and designer of boomerangs for forty years and I have a very large personal collection. I am also an aerospace engineer and I can explain the science behind how and why boomerangs work.


I'm a lover of literature and actively campaign for BOOKS.


Teaching French is a passion and a hobby. But, my world would not be complete without my family, my friends, my garden, literature, music, knitting, movies and exercise!!!

Boomerangs were used only by male Aboriginals who used them to disable animals during hunting. 427 metres is the record of throwing and the science facts are in my essay as I domyhomeworkonline writing about the culture and stats of boomerangs.
