Drones in the Classroom

| $170

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 changing workforce economy, we can look at adding drones to our curriculum. Bringing unmanned aerial vehicles into our schools and classrooms can provide an engaging opportunity to teach our students real-world skills. This workshop will provide an introduction to drone terminology, safety issues, legal concerns, requirements, and drone options.

STEM Series: Coding and Robotics Playground

From your thermostat to your lights to your vacuum cleaner, smart devices are all around us.

Media Literacy: Helping Students Make Sense of their Digital World

| $40

Can your students spot fake news? Do they know how to evaluate research sources for veracity? Are they aware of how social media works and its impact on their everyday lives? They’ll need to be able to do all three (and more) to become successful digital citizens, and that starts today, in our digitally-connected classrooms.
