DRONE THEORY & DESIGN CURRICULUM

A 16-Unit comprehensive curriculum package that focuses on
the fundamental principles of STEM EDUCATION.

This is a full 16-Unit curriculum based on the engineering design process, meaning the students work in teams to
design and solve activity challenges. Each unit contains student handouts, PowerPoint™ presentations, vocabulary lists
with quizzes, STEM-based student activities, a final unit quiz, and teacher lesson plans. This curriculum comes with
the option to purchase 230mm "Ready-to-Fly" Indoor Toy Drones or "RealFlight" Drone Simulator software. This full
16-Unit "Drone Theory & Design" curriculum is written as a semester-long course if every activity is carried out.

Our hope is this knowledge will provide a stimulus for the students to further explore the topic and develop their own
creations and designs. No outdoor flying skills are part of our "Drone Theory & Design" curriculum.

NOTE: As of March 13, 2020 we no longer offer the 450mm drone kits. Unfortunately, shipping from China has been severely disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic, and many of the parts have been discontinued. It became increasingly difficult to replace them. Instead of the kits, we offer 230mm "Ready-to-Fly" Drones and/or RealFight Drone Simulators for all curricula.
