It’s time to take off!
High school students will hone their problem-solving skills by designing, building, and flying drones in a Star Wars-themed competition created in partnership with Tulsa Tech’s FIRST Robotics Team 2795.
The Flight Night Drone Competition has three division levels that test the young pilot’s skills through a series of flying tasks. The competition will prepare students from across Oklahoma to become world-class problem solvers as they wield their flying robots through cleverly designed obstacle courses. The High School competition takes place in the Fall and the Elementary and Middle School competitions are scheduled for the Spring.
The High School Competition will have 2 categories: unmodified and modified. Unmodified will be the Mambo Parrot Drone as it is sold in stores. Modified will be this drone with any enhancements, or any other type of drone the students wish to build or purchase.
