The UAS / quadcopter initiative is designed to address the educational components and theories of UAS operations and flight. The program is open to all high school students/teams interested in learning about Unmanned Aerial Systems and developing skills associated with the building and flight of these systems. The program does not require specific equipment or UAVs. Teams may use existing equipment, purchase a system, or even challenge themselves and build their own UAS.
Guests: Matt Scassero, Executive Director, University of Maryland’s UAS Test Site will host the teams at the test site in Hollywood. Students will have an opportunity to see a variety of UAVs and discuss the current and future application of UAS.
