Drones in the Classroom

Tue. September 27, 2022 | 8:30 am - 2:30 pm CDT

As drones continue to grow in both popularity and functionality, businesses are rapidly expanding their uses of unmanned aerial vehicles. As we look for new ways to prepare our students for the ever-changing workforce, we should explore adding drones to our curriculum. Among other benefits, unmanned aerial vehicles can provide an engaging opportunity to teach our students real-world skills. With a drone in hand, your students’ STEM learning can truly take flight; all it takes is the right preparations and the right equipment.

Come discover what it takes to bring drones into the classroom as a part of this hands-on workshop. Participants will have the chance to ask questions and learn about essential drone terminology, safety issues, legal concerns, operational requirements, and drone model options. Participants will also walk away a DJI Trello EDU drone of their own to make implementing their newfound drone knowledge even easier.
