Implementing drones into the curriculum allows students to learn engineering, computer science, robotics and aeronautics skills. With these skills, students have the opportunity to obtain drone commercial pilot's licenses, gain employment in industries that include construction, defense, real estate and prepare for jobs that do not exist yet.

The audience will learn how to implement, maintain and grow a Drone program within the curriculum at their school. We will be discussing the problems we faced as well as the successes we encountered. We will also talk about strategies for keeping students engaged, technical considerations and issues with other logistics in a drone program. Our discussions will also incorporate our experience with "PCS edventures" and their curriculum.
