Through a partnership between the Kashmir World Foundation (KwF) and Eagle Ray, six students in grades 6 through 10 have been selected for a unique Girls in Technology experience scholarship that will teach them how to build and fly drones. Scholarship recipients will participate in a three-day build workshop from June 27-29, and have the chance to fly their drones on June 30 at Foxcroft School, an all Girls Boarding School in Middleburg, Virginia.
Participants will design, construct, customize, and test quadcopter drones over the first three days, and fly their creations on the fourth day. This experience scholarship will provide the girls with valuable knowledge and experience to prepare them for careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
The building segment of the workshop will take place at Eagle Ray’s location in Chantilly. Friends and family are invited to attend the flight day at the Foxcroft School in Middleburg on June 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
This experience is sponsored by Eagle Ray and run through KwF’s DaVinci Challenge, a project of Kashmir Robotics, KwF’s technology division, created as a means of educating people on building and customizing drones in an interactive setting. Eagle Ray is a rapidly growing woman-owned business specializing in strategic transformation services. KwF is a nonprofit organization solving real-world problems by harnessing the power of innovation, science and art to promote education and environmental stewardship and improve the lives of people and wildlife worldwide.
