There is a group called Myanmar Future Science which do science jobs such as building drones, making remote control car and they also open shops to sell science products. They do great jobs. They have been participating lots of science show locally and internationally.
They don’t have much people in the group. I know Tho Hi, Kyi Thar and Thet San who are key people in the organization. They can make drone themselves and now they have projects to help local CSOs by their drones. Beside, to foster local science community, they sell science products by reasonable price. They now become one of the big support for local science students who need materials for their projects.
Their team member studied engineering, but for drone, they self-taught. Drone can be used for many good purpose. Not only for techie thing, but also for CSO jobs such as researching data from area where people are hard to reach. Local young people are now interesting very much on drones and they want to develop it by themselves.
Drone and Science community is not big, but are having strength to grow further.
