U.S To Train 144 Nigerian Students On Drone Technology

The United States Consulate General in Lagos, on Monday, said, it would train 144 Nigerian students on drone technology.

The Public Affairs Officer of the Consulate, Russell Brooks, made this known during the Nigerian Youth Drone Academy workshop in Lagos.

Mr Brooks said the training was in collaboration with the Global Air Drone Academy, a U.S. based academy.

He also said pupils and students from 12 primary and secondary schools would participate in the workshop, learning how to assemble and fly drones.

He said drones were changing the world, hence, the need to pay attention to such technology.

According to him, drones are making agriculture more efficient, aiding search-and-rescue operations and delivering medicine to remote locations.

The possibilities for drones to help make our world better are endless and I am glad that the U.S. Mission is able to play a role in building a better Nigeria by supporting this project. I am excited to welcome public and private high schools from Lagos and Abeokuta, as they learn to become a part of this trend in aviation technology. Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education is a big priority for the United States government, and we believe that every student throughout the world deserves a high quality education in STEM.

That said, the registration details for the primary school and secondary school students would be announced later.
