Lead by the Union County Extension Office. This program engages youth with fun and educational activities related to aerospace, flight and unmanned vehicles. Drone Discovery simulates the experience of working with a real drone by providing a hands-on educational challenge that teaches youth about the basics of flight, remote sensing and real-world uses of drones. A kit containing unpowered foam gliders and plastic prop copters will simulate a drone experience. Everything in this kit can be safely operated indoors or outdoors. Students will learn about safety and regulation issues associated with drones throughout the course of the challenge. They can also learn about the regulations when flying a real drone via the FAA guidelines.
