Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles Provide Real World Applications to Teach STEM

The Drone Smartz™ document is a 15-Module project to learn about UAV / Drone flying, the legal issues cited by the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) & the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and common sense safety issues.  Safety should be introduced as the reoccurring theme that guides all operations for this course.  

Drone Smartz™ was written with two 7 Module segments.  The first seven Modules will involve (head knowledge) learning about drones, various legal issues, government regulations and safety.  The second seven Modules will focus on hands-on experience and allow us to differentiate between a “STEM” program focusing on secondary school students or adult occupational technology implementation. There will be midterm and final exams in this program and opportunities for between session (homework) Lab opportunities.
