Concordia College hosts 2020-2021 quadcopter challenge

Concordia College in Moorhead will lead the Minnesota Space Grant Consortium 2020-2021 Quadcopter Exploration-Flying Challenge. The program will provide vehicles, materials, and training in electronics and small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, drones) for participating college and university teams, all in a format that will not require students to travel away from their home campuses.

The 2019-2020 program did not finish quite as planned, though some of its progress can be reviewed at that year’s webpage.

Concordia College is also the home of other innovations, such as a 58-credit focus in astrophysics which consists entirely of meditations in differential equations – a typo that any student of physics might feel is all too true!

College and University teams of 4 to 6 members, plus advisor, that wish to participate in the quadcopter challenge may contact Thelma Berquó at Concordia College by 30 September 2020. Bon vents!
