The Maritime and Defense Technology Hub is home to the nonprofit - SOFWOLF - which provides a drone and career-skill program to underserved students throughout the area along with the nation's Gold Star community - those with a family member killed in action.  

Last summer, students had the opportunity to work along side Innovation District organizations: U.S. Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, and USF College of Marine Science as they developed their drone skills in simulated, real-world scenarios.

Planning is underway for this summer's experience.  Once again the SOFWOLF team will blend real-life situations, time with experts, and intensive training into an impactful, unique experience.
