Drone Conference at BSU


“Welcome to the Drone Age and a Drone is … What, Exactly?” a conference for experts and novices, teachers and students, as well as the curious and the cautious, will be held at Bridgewater State University on Friday, April 1.

The daylong conference will explore drone technology, uses, accessories and the growing number of drone applications. New England’s pre-eminent drone expert, Frank J. Serna, director of system engineering at Draper Laboratory in Cambridge, is the keynote speaker.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Dana Mohler-Faria Center for Science & Mathematics, sessions include “Know Before You Fly – Beginners Guide to Drones,” “Drones on Campus” and “Drone Apps – Explore the Latest Must-Have Accessories.”

An indoor drone demonstration will take place during a pizza party lunch sponsored by the College of Continuing Studies. A representative of the Federal Aviation Administration will be on hand during lunch for a question-and-answer session.

Weather permitting, drone demonstrations will move outdoors to Alumni Park, the university’s baseball field, where they will run from 1 to 4 p.m.

Limited seating is available. For more information and to register, visit www.bridgew.edu/drone/ or email Dr. Diana E. Jennings, director of regional partnerships, at diana.jennings@bridgew.edu, or call at 508.531.6189.
