Winter Haven, Florida – Last week, local teens had a chance to fly one of several Syma X5c Drones inside a large multi-purpose room at the Winter Haven Library.
Dubbed the Drone School; the Winter Haven Library hosted local teens for a class teaching flying skills and safety while operating a remote-controlled drone.
The room was separated by a net that kept the drones at a safe distance as they were being flown and protected the operators from errant drones that would lose control.
A pair of Library interns hosted the class and shared their skills with participants as they taught them control techniques on how to fly and basic flight operations. Some participants were even doing tricks with the drones by the end of the class.
Drone School is part of the library’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Youth Series.
