Event location details

Exhibition Road

Join the Urban flyers team and test your own coding skills by piloting drones or programming ground based robots around obstacle courses out on Exhibition Road. Those who clock the best times will get their name up on the leaderboard, and be in with a chance of claiming a prize!

Urban Flyers is a group of young Londoners and their youth worker, set up in 2017 to help others to access, learn and create with drone technologies. Since then the community organisation has expanded to offer a variety of drone and robotics related services and educational STEM workshops for schools, youth and public services, community groups, charities, local councils and businesses across London and the UK. Come along to their session and meet the team to find out more about their work across the capital and the new uses of drone technology which they hope might open up new routes into various industries for the young people they work with.
