Science Cafe on Wednesday will discuss flying robots (drones!) - be there or be square

The last Science Cafe Nashua before the summer hiatus* will take place Wednesday, June 19, from 6 to 8 p.m. The topic is flying robots - drones, if you will - and it should be good.

As always, the event will be shaped by questions from the audience - No PowerPoint Allowed! - amid much food and beer. Also as always, it's free.

Panelists are:

Jason Walker, lead roboticist and director of operations for CyPhy Works in Danvers, Mass. , which makes the Persistent Aerial Reconnaisance and Communication tethered drone, among other things.

Donald Norris, software and IT guy, former adjunct professor at Hesser College and New Hampshire College, pilot, has a book contract to write about how to design and build a multirotor helicopter “drone”.

Nicholas Kirsch, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at UNH. He will talk about drones with respect to electrical engineering challenges, wireless communication, other areas.

*There will be no Science Cafe Nashua (nor in Portsmouth or Durham, for that matter) in July and August. We'll be back in September.
