On March 8th, 2019, seven student teams gathered in Twin Falls, Idaho, for the ultimate test of drone knowledge and flying prowess. At the 2019 TSA Drone Challenge, the pre-competition atmosphere was buzzing. Teams were working laps in the practice tent, making last-minute adjustments to their drone as they rehearsed the critical lift-and-drop for the relay test, while others practiced reciting their presentations, ready to give it their all — with a title on the line, the excitement was palpable.
So, you want to bring cutting-edge STEM solutions to your students. You’ve leafed through pamphlets and sales catalogs, weighed the pros and cons of different programs and finally decided that this is the semester you bring the people what they want — drones.
If you've ever studied probability, odds are, you’ve calculated some combinations. Let’s see if you can put your skills to the test in this real-world problem: In a class of 30 students, how many ways can you group them if you want five per group? (Answer: 142,506 possible groups.) In other words, a ridiculous amount of possibilities even before considering the decisions still to come. Do you change groups for every project or keep them the same for an entire semester? Do you vary ability levels or group learners with similar aptitudes? Do you let students create their groups or assign them into carefully selected teams? It’s a tough cookie, we know — so let’s take a closer look at some of these grouping options and analyze when they would be most effective.
