UMA will be hosting a series of events throughout the state this summer to educate Mainers about drones or remotely piloted aircraft. The events will be held at all eight UMA Centers and at its Bangor Campus, and are free for participants. In Ellsworth, the event takes place on Monday, July 25 from 1 pm - 4 pm at UMA’s Ellsworth Center, Mill Mall, 248 State Street, Suite 1, Ellsworth. A complete list of all events is available at uma.edu/droneevent.
Each event will include a 90-minute presentation about the program and will explain the different course offerings for non-credit, credit, certificate, and early college courses. Each presentation will also explain how individuals and organizations are using drones and what the future of the industry holds. The presentations will close with a Q&A session, followed by flying demonstrations of several of UMA’s aircraft (weather permitting).
