Our partner Microsoft Store in Tysons Corner once again hosted the build workshop. Guest speakers from FAA encouraged the students to be advocates of safe flying and innovative learning. A special thanks to Ticonderoga Farms for hosting Flight Day. Our brave and motivated students were flying in freezing cold weather.

DaVinci Challenge: IV

The year began with another workshop of excited students at the Microsoft Store in Tysons Corner. Special guests from AMA, 3D printing, and volunteers from Microsoft Corporation enjoyed the workshop while educating the students. We were pleased to have another Flight Day at Foxcroft School where Cathy McGhee, Head of School announced the formation of a partnership with KwF in encouraging girls to excel in STEAM education.

DaVinci Challenge: V

Putting a new face on drone technology isn't an easy task. In the past, drones - or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles - have been associated with lethal military use. But all that is changing at the Microsoft store in Tysons Corner Mall. To help Americans see robotic aircraft from the broader perspective, we created the DaVinci Challenge: Build a Drone Workshop.  Through a series of "build a drone" courses, we began training a cadre of students, parents and teachers in the design, fabrication, customization, and operation of small robotic aircraft. It is an excellent blend of science, technology, art, engineering and math (STEM/STEAM). With guest speakers from the FAA, AMA, and local Maker Spaces, we have graduated students of all ages with a Kashmir Robotics "Drone Operator Certificates."
