TryDronesTM - Drone Racing Program

During the 2021-22 school year DHS will be a participant in an innovative Drone Program brought to us by LocoRobo/TryDrones. TryDrones is a Competition Based Learning (CBL) approach to immersing students in the technical challenges of Modern Drone Technology. Drone kits and curriculum for building + manual and semi-autonomous piloting are provided for local competitions. Finalists are invited to regionals. 
 
The commercial drone industry market size is projected to reach $92 billion by 2030. Exposure to drone technology offers the possibility of exciting and lucrative careers for our students.
 
Our program will be a application component of the Computer Science program in Career Tech.  Students will use what they learned about Linux, Python programming and apply it to building and programming the drones for competition.
 
We would like to thank the Demopolis City Schools Foundation for their generous grant in Fall 2021 that makes our participation in this program possible.
