South Hills Community News Release
STATE COLLEGE — South Hills School of Business & Technology is proud to sponsor the “State College Drone Racers,” a newly-approved, local MultiGP Scholastic Drone Racing Team, currently in its formative stages. MultiGP is currently the largest amateur drone racing league in the world and is an official Special Interest Group of the Academy of Model Aeronautics for FPV (First Person View) racing.
An information session for individuals interested in learning about the Drone Racing Club will be held on January 10, 2018, at 7 p.m. at the South Hills main campus, 480 Waupelani Drive, State College.
Chapter Organizer, Serafino (Paul) Mazza IV, said, “We hope to create a fun and competitive environment for anyone high school age or older that is interested in drone racing. We hope to bring the State College Community together to engage in the sport of the future.”
In addition to sponsoring the Drone Racing Club, South Hills is introducing “Discover Drones” a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) class series for teens (grades 7—12). The innovative curriculum provides 20 hours of hands-on learning using flight simulator software and drone building and flying experience. South Hills also continues to offer their popular, FAA Part 107 Drone Pilot Certification Classes, which were introduced earlier in 2017 at the State College main campus and has expanded the program to include the Altoona campus.
