Concordia College Organizes a 2020 Collegiate Drone-Building Challenge

On March 27 to March 28, nine teams were scheduled to get together and compete in a drone challenge. This challenge required students to work together to learn how to use CAD software, 3D print parts, and to code and wire microcontrollers to build a remote controlled drone that is tasked with navigating an area to collect data and samples. Every group was given a quadcopter kit to assemble their drones, which included a variety of advanced electronic parts, allowing the students to take lots of creative liberties when building their vehicles.

Unfortunately, this event was cancelled because of the outbreak of COVID-19. In an attempt to allow these teams to show their completed drones, the challenge was altered so that each team was now tasked with making a video about their drone and what they learned.


Below are the links to the final videos that each of the teams turned in.
