Education specialist Pitsco Education is launching a new drone curriculum and arena for schools.
The Kansas-based company, a specialist in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education, said that proper drone and drone safety education can prepare students for a wide range of career paths.
These include drone pilots, software developers, construction inspectors and more.
Pitsco will provide the curriculum, arena and other necessary materials to partner schools.
Using drones in the classroom opens a new set of opportunities to make classes more relevant and engaging for students.
Pitsco offers a variety of options to get teachers and students started with drones, from the Tello EDU Drone 5- and 10-packs to a drone arena and drone competition curriculum.
“Drones have become an important tool for preparing students for entry into a host of burgeoning STEM careers,” said Pitsco vice president of education Matt Frankenbery. “We’re excited to be able to bring this next step in STEM education to the middle school classroom.”
