3D Robotics Sponsors Drones for Schools with its 3DU Program
BERKELEY, CA: Consumer Drone manufacturer 3D Robotics embarks on a new venture to make drones popular among students by launching its 3DU educational program. 3DR believes drones can be a great support for school students and has hence started covering classroom programs from K-12 to postgraduates. They have also been giving away both hardware discounts and sponsorships to schools as a drive for its 3DU program. The students not only get to use the drones but they’ll also be provided with 3DR’s DroneKit software development kit to enable them to develop their custom apps for the same.
3DR CEO Chris Anderson speaks about the increasing applications of drones, “In the past, drone research and education was limited to aerospace or engineering departments, We’re seeing massive adoption of our drone platforms in education. The diversity and creativity of these programs is astonishing, from archaeology to cinematography to precision farming.”
3DR will be luring schools with their 15 percent discount on the Solo Drone and Solo Gimbal, and a 20 percent off over the price of its other hardware products. It has also announced partnership with the company Panoptes, makers of obstacle-avoidance system, with the motive to offer similar discounts to students and schools. This 3DU program is currently accessible for students along with clubs, courses and schools.
