The Namibia Flying Labs, in collaboration with the government of the United States of America, launched Project Dare To Fly on 22 January 2021 at the Academia Secondary School in Windhoek.

The launch was attended by teachers from Academia Secondary School (ASS) to educate them on the new journey. This initiative is to benefit learners from ASS as they will be taught basic robotic skills such as how robots operate.

Virginie Uwimana, the assistant coordinator at Namibia Flying Labs (NFL), says the project will be expanded to other schools.

“The project will accommodate about 25 learners who will be taught how to use drones to find solutions to problems in society,” she said.

The main focus will be on teaching the learners on how to fly drones and their uses in the community. The initiative was welcomed by the teachers, who are excited about this new journey.

The principal of Academia Secondary School, Herrman Rust, emphasised that it is important to keep up with the trend of technology.

“I think robotics is an important subject that learners should be exposed to from an early age because it is the future,” he said.

Terence Gurirab who is a teacher at Academia, commended NFL for the initiative.

“It is the beginning of something new for our learners, where it will indeed open doors for the learners in terms of careers.”

He said it will be a stepping stone for the students to get an idea of what drone piloting and robotics are all about.
