DRONETECH Educator Workshop: STEM DRones Take Flight
This workshop is a baseline introduction to drones and how to economically establish programs within your school. We cover basic drone anatomy, safety principles, regulations, and best practices in maintaining and documenting your drone program. We introduce economical STEM drones and show how they can be used in multiple ways to enhance education in a variety of skill sets. Lastly, we cover student competitions and how you can start a team(s) in your school or organization. This workshop can also be adapted for post-secondary educators or anyone looking to enrich existing programs or outreach activities.
AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY SENSORS - AIR | LAND | SEA
This virtual reality workshop was designed to deliver a primer on the sensor technologies that are impacting the aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment and marine autonomous technologies industries. Educators from these disciplines face many challenges from the rapid integration and prohibitive financial nature of these technologies. Jobs of the future will require a foundational level of knowledge of these sensors. Through hands-on experience and discussion, we cover industry trends and the future impact of advanced technology integration resulting from autonomous technologies. Attendees are prepared to use this technology in their classroom using portable, cost efficient experimentation and exercises.
