Take your students’ learning further by getting involved in the REC Foundation’s Aerial Drone Competition (RADC). The competition offers an exciting educational drone sporting event that focuses on hands-on, student-centered learning. Students will build their own drones, learn the mechanics of how they work and finally, they’ll get to fly and program their drones to navigate through a course to score points. The 2021-2022 Challenge was called RADC DownDraft2, where teams score points by scoring small and large balls in both corner and floor goals and landing drones in the landing zone at the end of the match. The new game will be announced in September 2022. For the competition, teams are paired together in an Alliance to compete in 3-minute matches to fly around the course and score as many points as possible to attain a higher score than the opposing alliance. Teams also compete in the Programming Skills Challenge where one drone takes to the sky to score as many points as possible through programming.
