RAD Drone

RAD Drone Competition

AED Blackout Logo

RAD (officially re-labeled by the REC Foundation as the Aerial Drone Competition) is an exciting challenge presented in the form of a game.  4 Drones made up of 2 Alliances fly around the field to score as many points as possible.  The object of the game is to attain a higher score than the opposing alliance.

RAD fosters student development through teamwork, critical thinking, project management, and communication skills required to prepare them to become the next generation of innovators and problem solvers.
