MCC is hosting a statewide drone competition on Friday, April 27

Dear students, friends, and colleagues,

The Engineering Science and Physics Department is hosting a statewide TYESA mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) competition on Friday, April 27 at the MCC field house. There will be six institutions, including RIT and Clarkson, participating in this event. The winning team will receive a state title plaque and a $300 cash price.

I am cordially inviting all of you to be a part of this event. Competing students have designed drones to simulate a first-aid delivery where human navigation is difficult or dangerous.

Here is the tentative schedule:

9:00 am - 10:00 am Team Check In and Set Up

10:00 am - 11:00 am Poster Session

11:00 am - Noon Lunch/test run

Noon - 1:30 pm UAV competition

1:30 pm - 2:00 pm Awards ceremony

Attached is the competition rules and regulation.

Please forward this message to anyone that would like to come to the event. We have parking lot G reserved for the non-college attendees. Please follow the internal road signs for Building 10 (the PAC). Here is the campus map: https://www.monroecc.edu/about-mcc/locations-maps/brighton-campus/

Hope I will see you all.
