Description

Drones have taken everybody’s imagination by storm. From packages and groceries being delivered to your doorstep to first responders reaching remote locations with lifesaving equipment in a moment’s notice, drones are becoming more and more prevalent in industry every single day. We want to provide our learners a solid aviation foundation and critical-thinking skill set to adapt to evolving innovations and challenges in drones.

With the Drone Maker Kit, you are given a system for designing, building, and flying your own drone! This kit is customizable and enables students to work through the engineering design process to iterate their own drone design. With the included engineer-focused curriculum, students work through activities to design and test their drone, carry a payload, and design and implement a delivery system, with each activity tying back to a specific career connection. Depending on the time you have available, you can compare different drone system configurations to see how well each solution meets the parameters of a set problem.

This kit brings the ultimate level of engagement while also teaching the basics of engineering and aviation through drone flight. The sky is no longer the limit with drone technology!

No device required.
