Description: AirVūz was a part of the first annual KING TeC Drone Camp. Held for two weeks at Prior Lake High School, 7-9th graders learned how to build, repair and fly a drone and then faced off against each other in flying competitions.
“AirVūz is here to film our drone camp. It’s one of the first of it’s kind in Minnesota because we were thinking, like, how can we expand our program? And we’re like, drones. The drone camp is one of five summer camps that KING TeC offers. All of our summer camps are run by High School aged students. KING TeC is a high school robotics team. KING TeC stands for Kids Integrating Newly Grasped Technological And Engineering Concepts." says Izzy Lindquist. Izzy is a KING TeC Member and Marketing Lead.
Mike Bros was the one who dove right in and was the Drone Camp Coordinator. His thoughts? "The whole point of this was to introduce a new generation to a new technology and to have fun doing it. Those were my two main goals, other than just have fun myself."
