UAS / Quadcopter Training Session 2

January 21, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

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: Professor Troy Townsend and the St. Mary’s College Physics students/interns who are developing solar-powered quadcopters and investigating composite materials for 3D Printed airframes.  Talk with the students to find out how physics, chemistry, engineering and computer science students are working together to develop the newest UAS technology right here in Southern Maryland.
