Drone Design

On the  28th of June BIEA hosted the inaugural Drone Design Awards at the South of England Showground in Sussex as part of the Big Bang Fair South East.

The event was a rousing success with over 2000 schools being reached of which 10 final teams were picked from close to 200 entries. The teams came from all over the country to Sussex to show off their designs to VIP judges, scientific experts, the public and thousands of other students.

The event finished with a dancing drone display provided by our technical partners, Goertek.
