Drones for Education

How Teachers Are Using Drones

Over the past decade, drones have grown in popularity among adults and children alike. They have become one of the fastest-growing hobbies around the world, capturing our interest and expanding what drones can do in our everyday lives. As of today, drones are capturing stunning aerial photography, delivering our packages, changing industries, providing security, providing endless fun, and so much more. Drone use is expanding every day and will no doubt continue to change in the future, which is why teachers are more frequently making drones a part of their curriculums.

As a growing industry set to transform countless industries in the future, there is a real opportunity to inspire the next generation with hands-on drone experience. Educators are incorporating drones into STEM-based curriculums to help students see the value that they can bring to the world and prepare them in careers in engineering and piloting.

Engaging, Multipurpose, Fun

Drones are endlessly adaptable – it is one reason why students find them to be so fun. When choosing an education drone for students, it is important to consider its “buildability.” Certain drones for STEM education are made to be taken apart and rebuilt again to help spark the love of engineering in students. Other students may be more interested in flying drones rather than understanding how they work. Ease of use for piloting and flying features are also important to educators when choosing drones for their classrooms.

Not only are teachers using drones to help students learn about engineering and piloting, but they leverage UAVs to teach students invaluable “soft skills”, e.g. communication and teamwork. When building or flying drones, students learn how to work together for a common cause while completing tasks.

UAV Technologies for University Students

Higher education can also improve their curriculum by including drones in it. Students studying specific industries in university courses can see the benefits of using drones for agriculture, computer programming, architecture, journalism, security, engineering, and so much more. All these industries will continue to be shaped by the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, making drones powerful learning tools with virtually unlimited potential.

Drone Pilot Training

For those who are interested in furthering their knowledge about drone operation, drone pilot training provides an opportunity to achieve certification by qualified personnel. Drone pilot certification requires pilots to follow operation and safety guidelines set by governments and are required to fly drones professionally. Getting a drone certificate requires knowledge about regulations, airspace, weather, loading and performance, emergency procedures, radio communications, knowledge about aircraft performance, and much more.

FIXAR EDU

We offer an educational system with methodologies that range from programs for preschool and school-age children and students to professional programs for commercial drone use. From the classroom to the boardroom, our educational system provides a drone curriculum that can work for anyone interested in learning about drones and the industry. Our educational modules include lessons in 3 main stages:

– Theoretical training (in-class training)

– Practical exercises, including assembly, configuration, working with software, as well as developing basic piloting skills (in-class training)

– Field practical exercises with full-fledged flight tasks

One of the best drones for education is FIXAR EDU – a drone that includes the characteristics of both a quadcopter and an airplane. Its design allows it to be used as a teaching tool about its assembly, structure, operation, and as a tool to teach aerodynamics.
