Drone Aviation STEM PBL Unit

SKU: W46479
$5,595.00 (USD)

Description

STEM PBL Units enable students to make STEM connections locally and regionally by completing STEM projects and corresponding STEM PBL Activators. The framework of our STEM PBL Units includes a meaningful STEM challenge, authentic inquiry, student choice, applied development, and public engagement. Additionally, all STEM PBL Units contain 3-D printing connections, career connections, and alignment to the national career clusters.

In the Drone Aviation STEM PBL Unit, students are challenged to complete any of the three Activators chosen by them or the teacher. PBL Activators available include Isolated Inspection, where students develop a plan to utilize a small drone to inspect difficult-to-reach areas within the school or other location; Drone Patrol, where students present a drone security solution to interested parties that includes a demonstration of their plan using a scaled model of the suggested area to be monitored; and Avalanche Analysis, where students use the drone to simulate looking for potential avalanche locations at a new mountain ski resort.

The unit comes with materials and equipment needed for a class of 24 students, a teacher’s guide containing activity details and instructions, and a guide with three STEM PBL Activators containing starter ideas, cross-curricular connections, a concept map, and career cluster alignment. A Getting Started with STEM PBL e-learning course comes with the purchase of a unit.
