How fast is your drone?
FAIRFIELD — A drone race will be held Tuesday to raise funds for Notre Dame High School’s STEM Club.
The event will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the Arts & Design Gallery adjacent to the Edgerton Center for the Performing arts at Sacred Heart University.
Sacred Heart students in Professor Tolga Kaya’s engineering explorations course cooked up the idea.
On the day of the race, students will set up their tents. For a small fee, the public can fly and race drones through the tents from 12:30 to 3 p.m. Prizes will be raffled off, and all money raised will go to the STEM club.
To support this project or to learn more about the event, contact Kaya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the first fundraiser Kaya and his class have planned as part of their effort to raise $5,000 for the club.
“This class is a continuation of engineering 101,” Kaya said. “During the fall semester, students learned about various fields of engineering. This semester, I wanted them to do a big project, something where they could all work together … I also wanted to attach service learning to engineering.”
