Edventures Drone Designers: Exploring STEAM Careers


Drama meets engineering as students choreograph robot dance with code!

If your students are still unsure of which STEAM career is right for them, this all-encompassing kit will give them a taste of everything! Students will be immersed in real-world examples of how drones are being used for good in the world, then follow in the footsteps of today's drone designers as they collaborate to costume, choreograph, and code drones in their own creative performances. From clothing design to aerodynamics to coding, students will use the engineering design process to discover myriad skills in a blended learning environment. When lessons end, store all equipment in a convenient plastic tub (included).
