Drone Camp is a four hour conference-style event that will address and challenge practical, theoretical, and ethical issues surrounding unmanned aerial rotocraft (aka drones). The centerpiece of the event will be a panel discussion featuring Wheaton faculty Matt Gingo, Josh Stenger, Mike Sawyer, and Wheaton student Zevi Rubin ‘16. Each panelist will deliver a ten-minute lightning talk that will examine drones from the perspective of their discipline. Faculty member and moderator Patrick Johnson will facilitate a broader discussion and Q&A from the audience.
After the panel discussion, audiences will have an opportunity to learn how to fly quad-copter drones through a series of flying challenges and compete in a drone obstacle course for prizes.
The event is the first in a series sponsored by the IMAGINE Project.
