Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are often associated with their military or police uses yet are increasingly being used for fun and recreation. Unexpectedly, these devices can also serve as a unique tool in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education, as educators and parents seek out exciting opportunities to engage students in learning and promote a mindset of creativity and innovation.
Putting real technology in the hands of students and giving them real-life challenges to solve can make learning feel more like fun than a chore. Indeed, this technique can help to answer the age old question: “Why do I need to learn this?” Students can quickly engage with 21st Century skills that may be required for innovation and technology in their future careers and lives. Explore the physics of flight, use aerial footage to explore physical landscapes, study the atmosphere, create art, develop solutions, and innovate new technologies. Truly, in terms of educational opportunities for drones, the sky is the limit both literally and figuratively!
