Drone technology is revolutionizing the way people learn in STE(A)M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). Learning how to become a certified drone pilot allows students to develop key skills like problem-solving ability, critical thinking, and decision-making that will benefit them throughout their life regardless of what profession or path they choose.
Students who undertake training courses can get certifications from organizations like FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate or UAV Pilot License which give them access to aviation jobs where they can be compensated appropriately for hours flown along with other related skill sets - all while fulfilling the intent of FAA regulations at scale. The hands-on experience gained through these certification programs provides real-world applications connecting classroom lessons and helping bridge any disconnects between theory vs practice scenarios that sometimes occur when it comes to more traditional teaching methods.
Here are some of the additional benefits of STEM education utilizing drone technology:
Develop foundational operating principles based on local laws and international regulations
Develop key skills like problem-solving ability, critical thinking, and decision-making
With the right certifications and experience, students can gain access to aviation jobs and develop key skills that will benefit them throughout their life.
