Drones carry banner reading Flight Night Drone Competition

It’s time to take off!

K-12 students will hone their problem-solving skills by designing, building, and flying drones in a Star Wars-themed competition created in partnership with the Tulsa Drone Racers and Tulsa Tech’s FIRST Robotics Team 2795 Ohm’s Claw.

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 competitions 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.
