Why are drones becoming so popular in education?  

They capture stunning aerial photography, save lives in modern day search and rescue missions, collect samples from whales for scientific research, inspect vast agricultural landscapes and thrill spectators in First-Person View (FPV) racing — but that’s not all. They’re also making their way into high schools across the nation.

From zero-to-sixty in less than a second, the unique aerial robotics platform of FPV drone racing provides students with a total STEM solution, engaging learners in challenges of engineering, physics, math, coding and more!

DRONES:

• Are a highly engaging, optimized tech-ed recruiting tool.

• Invigorate learning spaces through rich STEM experiences.

• Provide hands-on training for future careers in the exploding drone industry           

• Bring the technologies of tomorrow to the hands of students today!
