KVEC Inaugural Drone Race

78 students from 8 KVEC schools arrived at Hazard Community and Technical College to participate in a drone building workshop and indoor race. Betsy Lane, Belfry, Sheldon Clark, Wolfe County, Lee County, Owsley County, Knott County and Middlesboro received drone kits from KVEC and the Appalachian Technology Institute a little more than four weeks ago as part of an aeronautical learning project. Students spent the first part of the day fine-tuning their design and taking test flights, ultimately culminating in a race during the afternoon.

This is the first KVEC drone race with further development, educational projects, and competitions planned for the next school year.
