September 15, 2020:  The FARM-i-GEDDON & Metro Meltdown Northeast Team Drone Challenges are postponed until it is safe for teams to once again participate at a live, in-person events.     We are committed to preserving the spirit & excitement of our original format & will continue to work on improvements throughout the school year.   Assistance to teachers & recreational drone owners through advice, camaraderie, modified workshops & distanced demos is still available.   Advice to teams that wish to utilize elements from any of our 3 challenges in a modified format is just an email or phone call away.   As always, we value input as we navigate through the current health crisis & plan for future events.   Contact us anytime!
