Every day, drones are used to make people’s lives easier. They have a number of applications across dozens of industries, and are used to make tasks more time efficient, financially efficient, and in some cases, to save lives. Drone’s have the capability to change how we work for the better. To put it simply - drones are tools, not toys.
Drone education is inspiring the next generation workforce - but it takes much more than hardware and software to make it happen. The North Carolina Educator UAS Cohort (NCEUASC) is a diverse partnership, offering solutions and support for integrating drone educational programs in schools.
The Cohort offers a Tello EDU fly kit and one year subscription to DroneBlocks, a drone curriculum provider. This holistic approach enables educators with the resources needed to successfully integrate drones into their STEAM curriculum.
Industry leader, Paul Rossi states “The NCEUASC is committed to supporting the educators of North Carolina integrate drones as educational tool into the elementary, middle and high school classrooms across the state,”
North Carolina students will have the opportunity to join a virtual competition in May. Teams of 4 students will be led by Cohort members preparing them for the fun and educational contest in the coming weeks.
Education is such a pivotal aspect of the drone industry. By continuing to teach students and the general public about the opportunities drones allow, we can help the industry grow and inspire the next generation workforce.
