Eyes in the Sky: The World of Aerial Drones

Edward E. and Jane B. Ford Gallery
Open May 8, 2021 through August 1, 2021

Drones have rapidly made their way into every facet of our lives. From sophisticated drones flying in the military, aiding in search and rescue efforts after natural disasters, efficiently fertilizing farmer's crops, taking high resolution pictures and video from unique vantage points, nimbly maneuvering around obstacles in exciting races, and even flying on other worlds within our Solar System, these unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, continue to progress and evolve in interesting ways. We explore this fascinating technology in this exhibit, as we display a diverse array of drones and illustrate how these vehicles are being relied upon for many different applications.
