Drone Awareness and Safety Summer Camp – FULL

July 20 @ 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM

Join us for a unique summer camp that uses drones to inspire students in STEM career pathways. This camp is perfect for a student that has little to know experience but has an interest in learning about drones. Another great use of this camp is for students that may have just purchased a drone themselves and want to know about the rules and regulations on how and where to fly safely.

Drones are a lot of fun but can be a liability nightmare if used incorrectly. This one day workshop will review the following:

  1. Where to find the laws governing drone use in Texas.
  2. Basic science behind flight / Dos and Donts
  3. How to properly safety check your drone before flight
  4. The differences in fixed wing and rotary format drones
  5. Hands on skills demonstration on basic flight of a drone

This camp is for students in grades 6th – 12th. This is not an FAA PART 107 COMMERCIAL DRONE LICENSE class, but is a great orientation to the world of legal operation of an unmanned aircraft. This course is taught by an FAA license sUAS drone pilot with more than 8 years of experience in drone flight, program management and training.

Lunch provided

In partnership with RGV STEM and powered by FIRST RGV, INC.
