Want to transform your students into drone pilots using Pitsco’s Drone Maker Kit, but not sure where to start?

The Drone Maker Teacher Guide was written with the NGSS engineering design standards in mind for Grades 3-8, as the kit features a rapid iteration process and tons of fun. It contains a quick, teacher-friendly introduction to drones, troubleshooting and getting started tips, reproducible student pages galore, and a copy of the student-facing user guide in the back. Between teaching FAA Part 107 rules and regulations, implementing principles and vocabulary of flight, offering career connections, and kicking off actual flight activities, this guide will have your learners become drone makers in no time.

Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the Drone Maker Kit (92130) and scissors.
