4-H Drone Soccer for 9th-12th

Share on

Description: Drone soccer is a thrilling indoor team sport played with radio-controlled quadcopters in protective exoskeletons designed for collisions. Open to 9th-12th grades. Five player teams face off in a netted arena where they ram and block the opposing team to prevent them from scoring while their striker drone simultaneously attempts to score.  But before pilots can compete they must first learn to build, program, fly, and repair the high-performance drones that they will be piloting.  Our class will include teaching engineering skills, aeronautical concepts, FAA regulations and practice flying skills, all of which will prepare our students to pursue exciting aviation careers.
