"Gregg Novosad is in his second year offering drone competitions to students who have worked during club meetings to learn to fly through a technology called FPV, or first-person view. The setup allows racers to view a screen or put on a pair of goggles and watch a live video feed from their drone, as if they’re onboard.
"Novosad said his league aims to train students in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills needed to fix a common problem: broken drones.
“'Keeping these drones flying is critical,' said Novosad, whose 16-year-old son, Brett, is involved in racing. 'Kids aren’t necessarily good. They break these things … So that’s step 1 of STEM — how do you fix it?'"
