In addition to Drone Demonstrations at Warren Community College, Area 57 will feature Combat Robots, Drone Light Show Demos, Drone Soccer Demos, presentations on How a Balloon Works, suspected alien Fred G Monster special shape hot air balloon, a visit from the Thank You Balloon and a scavenger hunt, and some Power Racing Series car demos.
This event is new for 2023, and will be held on the last day of Droning On event being held free and open to the public by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The FAA event is a 3 day presentation that highlights the societal, economic, and educational benefits of drones.
The event is RAIN OR SHINE! Most activities will be moved inside either the College or the Warren Tech should the weather not cooperate. A few activities will not work inside (tethered balloon rides, balloon hot inflations, outdoor drones). But some drones can fly inside, without you being told to go play outside!
