The theme for this year's Drone Odyssey is Climate Change and Natural Disasters. Missions are focused on applications of drones in disaster zones. Drones can provide valuable information and assistance in areas that may be difficult or dangerous for humans to access.

Drone Odyssey Challenge is back!

Drone Odyssey Challenge 2023 (DOC 2023) is an exciting game-based competition that promises plenty of fun. It inculcates technical skillsets, critical thinking, and an appreciation of new and disruptive technologies relevant to the modern world. Open to students from the Primary and Secondary levels, this competition will see participants working together in teams to code their programmable drones to transform them into Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) capable of performing tasks under given scenarios.

Learn how drones play a significant role in natural disaster response and recovery efforts via this year’s DOC. Teams will learn to code AI capabilities of their drones to complete basic and advanced missions for Obstacles Challenge Categories. In the Drone Swarming Challenge, the team can apply innovative ways to perform flight routine or geo surveying through unmanned aerial systems (UAS).

Drone Odyssey Challenge is organized by Science Centre Singapore with support from the Ministry of Education (MOE) and various partners.

A series of workshops and live demonstrations have been specially developed for both students and mentors to complement their learning journeys leading up to the competition proper. Drone Odyssey Challenge is organised by Science Centre Singapore and EP Tec Solutions PTE LTD with support from the Ministry of Education (MOE) and various partners.
