On Saturday January 21st 2017 The Sharp Project hosted ‘Drone Hack : Journalism’ in association with the Media Innovation Studio, Journalism.co.uk and Trinity Mirror.  An audience of journalists, creatives, storytellers and technologists worked in teams to develop ideas in uses of drone technology that were tested in flight at end of the hack in Stage One.

The Drone Hack also featured talks from experts including Ben Kreimer, journalism technologist and former beta fellow at BuzzFeed’s Open Lab; Sally French aka Drone Girl, John Mills, lecturer and researcher based at the Media Innovation Studio at UCLan; and Darren Ansell, space and aerospace engineering lead in the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences at UCLan.
