mindSpark Learning has teamed up with DroneBlocks in a move to provide educators with additional block coding resources when they rent a drone kit from The Drone Project.
DroneBlocks, which offers drone technology apps, curriculum, and professional development, will offer its programming expertise to The Drone Project, which mindSpark Learning launched in September.
Since its launch, educators have used the drone kits from the project to lead problem-based learning schemes, like evaluating STEM Lab’s new roof for hail damage after a storm.
Dennis Baldwin, co-founder of DroneBlocks, said: “We’re dedicated to inspiring kids to code and what better way to start that movement than by offering educators the resources they need to spark curiosity and knowledge?”
He continued: “The partnership with mindSpark Learning’s Drone Project coincides with our vision to make coding and programming more accessible for all.”
Director of Professional Learning, Davis Turner, added: “Since launching The Drone Project, we’ve continued to expand our drone technology offerings. Our latest drone, the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise, includes a 4K camera, a modular design for job-specific attachments, and capabilities catered for industrial purposes.”
