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 toplay 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.
