Rokk3r Labs (R3L) recently partnered with The Idea Center to kick off a six-week module named Cobuild as part of DronesUp, the groundbreaking drone-training program. Launched in 2016, DronesUp provides instruction to prepare students for careers as commercial drone pilots. Students also develop an enhanced understanding of how drones are changing diverse industries including agriculture, real estate, healthcare and more. Students who complete the program will be prepared to pass the FAA Part 107 sUAS (small Unmanned Aircraft System) Remote Pilot Certificate exam. DronesUp is made possible through a R3L grant and a $25,000 contribution from AT&T. Additionally, R3L offered a scholarship to a DronesUp student last year. Overall, the new partnership aims to educate business owners about the fundamentals of company-building, from vision development to raising capital, through the lens of exponential organizations. With a proven track record of launching more than 40 companies, R3L seeks to encourage and motivate the development of entrepreneurship, to achieve the materialization of ideas and to help students build on their ambitions. MDC’s DronesUp program launched its new Cobuild module. The new partnership has developed course curricula that help stimulate ingenuity by utilizing the latest technology. Creative strategists and engineers from R3L contributed to these lesson plans.
