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 teams in Region II New York.  We seek donations to support equipment, materials & logistics — AND — are always looking for the next champion to support our growth.
