Celebrate International Drone Day at Gannon University
Posted: May 1, 2018
On Saturday, May 5, Gannon University's GUBotDev student
robotics team, along with Erie UAV, will host the 2nd International
Drone Day (IDD) for the Erie Region from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at
Gannon's Recreation and Wellness Center, located at 130 W. Fourth
This family friendly event will host drone pilots from around
the area and welcomes all to see that 'Drones are Good!' This is
the mantra of the approximately 150 teams throughout the world
participating in IDD by holding events to educate those outside the
drone community on the many positive ways in which drones are used
to better society. Drones are becoming an integral part of everyday
life; from search and rescue, to agriculture monitoring, to
creating art, and the fast-paced world of drone racing.
This event is free and open to the public and will feature
flight demonstrations for attendees of all skill levels and drone
racing among local pilots.
Opportunities for media interviews include:
