Now Entering the Drone Zone
Rowan University students' drone cage meets FAA's Aviation STEM Challenge head on.
A visit to Tech Center Tuesday isn't complete without stopping to admire the drone cage. Luckily, it's impossible to miss in the center of the atrium. The drone zone cage is the centerpiece of the event and a representation of the Tech Center's collaboration with government, academia, and industry. 

The drone cage was on full display yesterday during the Tech Center's first-ever Aviation STEM Day with 114 registered students from 22 schools and universities. The drone zone cage was designed by Rowan University engineering students and built by the FAA.
