AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Amarillo College hosted a drone camp for kids this week.
Today they had science technicians from the USDA Ag Research Station in Bushland come out to Memorial Park and demonstrate how they use drones in their work.
Drone technology has been able to provide numerous benefits to producers in our area by helping detect problems with crops early on and map irrigation systems.
“The younger generation is gonna be the ones that are taking over and they’ll be entering, you know, the workforce eventually. So helping them kinda know what’s available now will kind of help them stay up to date in the future as they enter the workforce,” said Jed Moorehead, biological science technician.
The demonstration lasted about an hour and a half.
