“This is a great opportunity to learn how to fly a drone and have fun doing it,” EWC Precision Agriculture Instructor Matt Scott said. “The college will provide the drones; you just have to show up.”

The challenge is for any students from kindergarten to college to learn to fly a drone in the morning, starting at 10 a.m. Then at 12:30 p.m., students will have the opportunity to race a drone through an obstacle course.

“Students and educators are welcome to come and participate,” Scott said.

The cost is $10 to enter. Participates will be divided into two different groups, K-12 and college students and teachers. Prizes will be awarded in each division.
