SDSU students building human-carrying drone

BROOKINGS, S.D. - Engineering students at South Dakota State University are designing a drone large enough to carry a person for their Capstone senior design project.

The project is made possible by a nearly $80,000 grant from NASA.

The team will receive half of the funding but then must raise at least $2,000 through crowd-sourcing to receive the remainder of the grant.

The project deadline is Nov. 2, 2020.
