Agribotix test pilots educate 5th graders about responsible drone use

 

Agribotix test pilots Tom McKinnon and Rick Burd spent a morning educating 5th graders on responsible drone use in precision agriculture. They demonstrated how to program a flight path, launch the drone, and analyze the images. Additionally, they all spent part of the morning learning about dry land organic farming from Golden Prairie owners Jean, Randy, and Bryce, riding in a tractor, and piloting an R/C aircraft. Agribotix graciously thanks Golden Prairie for organizing this opportunity and looks forward to our next occasion to spread the word about drones for good. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you think your organization could benefit from a collaboration or demonstration.
