They're at it again! A day after The Priory School's science week, where the Canadian Drone Academy taught grades 5 and 6 the basics of Drone flight.The Priory school invited us again to their first ever Maker’s Faire. Similar to science week, the Canadian Drone Academy alongside other key guests were invited to host table booths showcasing their particular STEM specialities. The students weren’t the only ones thrilled to participate! Priory staff, parents and guests were eager to play with drones! Students of all ages under our wing learned drone safety and Canadian flight regulations. Once ready, students picked up micro-drone remotes and FPV goggles. Students were excited to stay afloat and perform flight maneuvers, ultimately hoping to challenge the deathly hoola hoop obstacle course in the gymnasium.  "It was great to see the look on all the kids faces," says Nick Iversen, Canadian Drone Academy founder, "it's always a pleasure to work with the Priory School." The event aimed to introduce technology to the everyday curriculum, and most importantly teaching students that they too can be makers n’ movers in whatever they choose to do.

We have bought a fleet of Tiny FPV Drones and they are very easy and fun to fly. They are inexpensive and can take a good beating, they can be flown indoors and anyone from the ages of 10 and up can easily learn to fly this in a few hours.
The Canadian Drone Academy opens is doors for its first semester in march 2016 to 20 students at the Concordia makers space district 3. We are very excited to show 20 people how to build and fly a drone from scratch and then have them race at the Montreal Drone Expo.
