- General Details
Light up the skies your school with the most exciting science show you’ll ever see!
Drones take STEM to the next level, literally! Cutting edge computer technology makes self-flying vehicles possible, and what they can do is simply amazing. Start with basic physics ideas, add in programming concepts, a bit of math, and create a drone ballet in the air. This program is more than just a drone show, it’s a STEM/STEAM show! Interactive inquiry-driven science and engineering will excite volunteers, and your whole audience!
Concepts likely to be explored:
- Newton’s laws – Propulsion, equal and opposite reactions, energy
- Torque – Spin at the right times, not the wrong ones
- Fluids – How does air hold stuff up?
- Automation – Powerful lightweight computers make drones possible
- Feedback – Drones rely on fast sensors to react quickly
- Programming – Instruct drones do simple, and amazing things, all automatically
- Math – Program drones using coordinates and formulas
Want to show off to your community? We can take a class picture from overhead, and weather/space/time permitting, we can create a beautiful flyover video of your school from above.
This show aligns with the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) standards as well as the Next Generation Science Standards–PS3.A, PS3.B, PS3.D
The presenter did a remarkable job engaging the audience. He also explained the reasoning and the method behind everything in language that all the students understood. A s a teacher I know how hard it is to capture the attention of a classroom, let alone a school—I guess it didn’t hurt that there the, “dance of the drones” as a finale!
“I just wanted to write and say thank you for the opportunity for our school to experience the ‘Drone Science’ show. The staff and students both came up to me after the show to tell me how much they liked it. The presenter was amazing and went out of his way to answer everyone’s questions during and after the show. Kids are already asking when we can have it back!
As a science teacher I know how hard it is to come up with new ways to make STEM learning fun, this program really hit the sweet spot between education and entertainment, I would recommend this show to all schools.
