University of Wyoming Drone Education

Did you or one of your students receive a drone for Christmas?  Do you know someone who would like to learn to fly a drone or increase their flight skills?  How about racing through an obstacle course to see who can fly it fastest with the most eloquence?  We have the program for you! 

This winter, the University of Wyoming Drone Education program is hosting several events just for you.  On several Saturdays around the state, students (and their teachers) can come learn how to fly their drones (or one of ours) in the morning, and then try their flight skills on our timed obstacle courses.  

 Flight training starts at noon and obstacle course racing starts at noon.  Feel free to come to either or both sessions!   

--In Powell on Saturday, April 29th (RESCHEDULED DATE) – Northwest College Yellowstone Conference Center 

The Wyoming Drone Challenge flight training and drone racing program is open to all students and teachers – K-12, technical school, college, and university.  Come as a team or as an individual.  A $10 registration fee includes a free drone pilot’s t-shirt (while supplies last).  Volunteers are also needed.
