Campus drone workshops teach high school students

ULM is hosting three free drone workshops for middle and high school students this month. 

The first two were March 5 and 12, and the third will be March 26.

Students will practice flying drones in Bayou Park.

Leading the workshops will be David King and Darrion Flunder-Jenkins, ULM’s unmanned aircraft systems management professors.

Students will begin by leaning about UAS technology and regulations before going to Bayou Park to practice flying the drones.

ULM is the only university in Louisiana that offers a degree in UAS Management, and one of less than 100 institutions in the nation in the FFA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Collegiate Training Initiative.
