Drone workshop with Jon Flint at Goldsmiths Design Festival

As part of our first ever Goldsmiths Design Festival (3-9 September 2015), our students had the chance to learn how to build a drone themselves, and we had just the right person to guide them. Jon Flint, who led the Drone workshop, is a graduate of our MA in Interaction Design and he currently works with Superflux, of Drone Aviary fame.

The participating students spent the day learning the principles of drone flight and then built their own prototypes under Jon’s supervision. At the end of the workshop, it was time to test the results! It was a sunny, bright evening which allowed the workshop team to take their creations outside on the College Green and see them take flight.
