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 drone enthusiasts, 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 teams in AMA Region II, covering both NY & NJ. We all volunteer because we see the possibilities and the results. We push on, seeking donations to support equipment, materials & logistics — AND — looking for the next champion to support our growth.
