Competition Workshop Skill Building


The SAE BRASIL Fórmula Drone is an educational program that aims to stimulate the dissemination and exchange of techniques and knowledge regarding engineering, applied to the operation of drone-type rotary aircraft.

The program is designed for high school students from technical schools (private or public) and is divided into 2 steps: practical applications and competition. For the competition phase, students will be divided into teams of 15 students, supervised by a teacher from the institutions that they represent. Students will develop systems to control drones, aiming to complete missions that constitute the technical challenge of the competition. Prior to the competition, the program also has a training period for the teachers and instructors that will work with the students.
