High school students and teachers from across Walton County spent three days this summer at an immersive STEM Summer Challenge sponsored by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Gaetz Aerospace Institute. From flying and coding aerial drones, to navigating complex courses with terrestrial drones and engineering hovercraft, these students were engrossed in hands-on STEM concentrated around the real-world uses of unmanned vehicles. A special thank you to the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium for organizing the challenge.
