March 1, 2015 – Elizabeth Ciobanu at Droneblog talks with Aliyah Pandolfi, CEO of Kashmir World Foundation on the opening of the DaVinci Challenge, a three day, build a drone workshop hosted by the Microsoft Store. Aliyah and two interns, Brent and Alex, share with Droneblog about how the workshop works and who benefits.
The DaVinci Challenge grew out of the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge, as the people at KWF saw a need for people to learn more about drones, how they work, and how to build them. The DaVinci Challenge workshops are available to people of any age who want to learn to build a drone. The workshops happen in three parts – building the frame, mounting the programs and controls, and the fun part – flying them.
As people walk through the workshops, they keep a build log with sketches and notes, to end up, like DaVinci, with detailed plans for their flying craft. The skills gained through these workshops enable anyone to understand how to build drones and find ways to use them to make the world a better place.
