CNY Drones @ RoboSpartans Robotics is run under our fiscal sponsor, the Griffiss Institute,  a 501(c)(3).  RoboSpartans Robotics (established in 2007) had an incredibly successful run as a founding team of local FIRST Tech Challenge & FIRST LEGO League programs & as 3X World Championship multi-award Finalists.  Former veteran coaches & regional STEM event coordinators initially met with drone enthusiasts, educators, government officials & drone technology company representatives monthly during 2016 to establish the direction & initial operational plan of the group.  

Since then, we’ve been running programs monthly through a core Planning Committee of committed community-minded commercial drone pilots, enthusiasts, educators and trainers, extending our reach to inner-city & rural populations in New York State.  With the growth of U.S. Drone Soccer, our reach is extending further to accommodate school teams in AMA District II New York/New Jersey.  We seek donations to support equipment, materials & logistics — AND — are always looking for the next champion to support our growth.
