This will be the Third Drones in the Classroom Conference. You can see the presentations from the second Drones in the Classroom event at https://womenanddrones.com/drones-classroom-educators/ . This Conference is hosted by the Aerial Robotics in STEM Education (ARISE) organization.
We are working with LexGo to provide you with an interactive venue where attendees will be “sitting at tables” where they can discuss topics of mutual interest.
The purpose of this conference is to share classroom best practices, industry growth, future jobs, FAA regulations, safety, interscholastic competitions, curriculum and training opportunities with drones.
The conference will have two sessions. The General Session will provide all the attendees with an overview of the issues facing educators in the classroom. The Breakout Sessions will consist of longer presentations and panels on specific Drones in the Classroom issues. One registration will give you access to both sessions.
