Leap into the world of drones, robotics and remotely piloted aircraft!

Join the adventure in the Hiller Aviation Museum’s Drone Plex flight center.  Use high-fidelity multirotor simulators to master remote aircraft operation, then fly real drones in the netted Drone Plex enclosure.  Build and fly a first-person-view (FPV) drone, then program a Parrot Mambo aircraft to have it complete a flight autonomously!

Bring coding to other robotic vehicles, from simple line tracers to drag-and-drop multifunction robots.  Explore the science of electricity and build and drive an electric-powered car.  Explore polymers, pneumatics and magnets, complete a helicopter-themed design challenge and more in an exciting adventure in drone and robotic engineering!
