An unmanned aerial vehicle buzzed like a bee Tuesday morning above the outskirts of Moscow, its camera surveying a muddy patch of land at the University of Idaho's Parker Farm, 100 feet below. It was a small drone: a four-propeller, DJI Spark. Its pilots, a couple of 14-year-olds from Moscow Middle School, Barrett Abendroth and Jackson Prestwich, stood near a licensed pilot as they controlled the drone's direction with joysticks and watched the camera's view on an electronic tablet from the ground. The two were among dozens of local middle and high school students who learned to fly the drone and program their own devices Monday and Tuesday as part of a series of workshops from the U of I's new Idaho Drone League (I-Drone) program.
