‘Day of Drones’ coming to Liberty Science Center

Drones are flying into Jersey City.

Liberty Science Center has teamed up with the NYC Drone Film Festival to bring a “Day of Drones” to LSC on March 6.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in virtual reality drone tours, tournament-style drone fights, and visit a custom drone expo.

Paul Hoffman, president and CEO of LSC, said the center is proud to bring the educational experience to Jersey City.

“As the drone building and drone film-making community grows, we can serve as a community resource — teaching people of all ages how drones work and how to fly them,” said Hoffman, who is also a member of the NYCDFF jury.

Day of Drones activities are included with a regular admission or membership ticket. Film screening tickets are available for an additional cost.

The NYCDFF is the first to exclusively feature movies filmed with drones. Films from all over the world and from many different perspectives are expected to be featured.

“The Science Center’s commitment to sharing the magic of drones will help introduce the wonder of drones and drone film-making to a whole new audience,” said festival founder and director Randy Scott Slavin.
