An info session will be held to introduce sophomore and junior girls to opportunities about building and flying drones at the Elementary Institute of Science (EIS) on Feb. 27.

The program, Girls Take Flight, will only be accepting 100 girls from six schools (Crawford, Gompers Preparatory Academy, Hoover, Lincoln, Morse or O’Farrell Charter School).

“The program will be a good opportunity to explore creativity with new technology,” said  Karla Wilkins, bookkeeper of EIS.

Those who get into the program will have the chance to participate in a 32-week internship where they will gain more insight on the use of drones.

Upon completion of the internship, students will be officially registered as drone pilots with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Students will also be introduced to a week-long camp that will teach girls how to construct, repair, and fly drones.

“Drones are new and everyone should be able to understand new technology,” Wilkins said.

    The info session will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. To RSVP, visit
