One of APSU’s newest clubs is turning heads toward the sky. The Drone Club was established this month and has about ten members.

“Typical meetings currently involve networking and promoting the club, track of the month, training, and fun events,” Michael Hunter, the Drone Club’s president, said.

The club has two track race days planned for the fall semester.

On Friday October 12 from 5 to 7 p.m., the Drone Club, the Geology Club, and the Association of Computing Machinery are hosting a joint event called the SimJam 2018.

This event will be held in MUC 303. There will be a SIM race and prizes for the winners. Pizza will be served as well.

“Our goal is to bring students together, compete as a team, and utilize STEM.” Hunter said.

“We’re not all computer or engineering students,” Hunter said.

“For example, I’m a Graphic design major and we want a well-rounded group of individuals to be involved.”

Club dues are $25 a semester. This fee gives you access to all the equipment in the GIS Center.

“You do not have to buy any equipment. If you would like to bring your own to fly, you are more than welcome to.  If you would like to make your own but need some help, I would be more than happy to walk you through the process.”

The club meets twice monthly for races in the Dunn Bowl. The club hopes to use the Fortera Stadium for future races.
