2020 DESIGN A DRONE 

COMPETITION

If you could design a drone to help with a problem in the World today, what would you design?

Think of ways a drone might be able to help solve a problem or provide assistance in some way.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • Does the drone fly, crawl, walk, swim, dance, hop, or float?

  • Does the drone deliver something or remove something or work on something?

  • How can the drone take technology we already have and make it better?

  • What aspects of command and control does the drone have?

  • How smart is the drone?

  • Does the drone have sensors or eyes or whiskers?

  • How does it get powered up and stay moving?

  • What elements of mother nature does the drone have? This is called bio-inspired engineering.

DESIGN THE DRONE

There are many ways to create your design

for your drone.

Draw up the schematic and plans for the drone. 

Create a cartoon character of the drone. 

Make a 3D version of your drone and film it. 

Create a lego version of your drone

You may also create a video describing your

drone and its features.


Your video description should help others to understand:
How would the drone look? (Appearance)

What is the problem that your drone would solve? (Purpose)
Does it fly, crawl, swim, run, or bounce? (Movement)

What material is it made of? Could it be made of renewable resources?

Or recycled material?

SHARE YOUR DRONE IDEAS WITH OTHERS

Due to popular demand and more countries getting involved, we have extended the competition out.
