Drones equipment and accessories is the latest way that Higher Order Innovation is hoping to inspire STEM education. We are the sole provider of drone equipment and accessories for the CREATE Drones Challenge for the 2019-2020 season. Every team that registers through the CREATE Foundation will receive two drones and two remote controls as part of the welcome kit.
What is the CREATE Drones Challenge?
The CREATE Drones Challenge is a new program geared towards middle and high school students, especially robotics programs looking for a alternate competition that is heavy on engineering and excitement. Teams start with the same basic drone and then design, build, and test add-on equipment to allow them to more quickly complete the Whirlwind Course with their alliance partner. A full set of documentation that can be found on the CREATE Drone Challenge Homepage.
Additional drones equipment and accessories
This drone model was selected based on several criteria, including the robustness of the mechanical design, inclusion of a remote, dual camera setup, and good flying characteristics. Additionally, this drone model was selected for its break-away blade design to lessen their impact on the arena and any incidental contact. To keep the playing field even, the model of drone and replacement parts are limited in the CREATE Drones competition. For the 2019-2020 season, team differentiation will be done primarily through strategy, communication, and piloting, rather than necessarily drone modifications.
