At the highest levels of play, it’s easy to see that sports are a demonstration of pushing the body to its limits. But under the surface, sport is an incredible marriage of many different sciences all working together at an astonishing pace. From the biology of body movement to the aerodynamics of a swimmer and physics of a soccer player, there’s a lot to learn from the athletes in our lives.
Just like how you can’t change the oil in your car without first learning how to do it (and more importantly, why you should change your oil), learning about our bodies is the first step towards bettering ourselves, both physically and mentally. Being that it’s National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, there’s never been a better time to review why it’s so important for students to have a working knowledge of the human body, especially when it comes to something as simple as nutrition. As one of the largest factors in maintaining a fit life, nutrition is just as important as getting up and getting active.
So, why it’s so important for learners to understand how their bodies work?
So, you’re venturing out to the flight field for the first time. Your students are thrilled, and the class’s excitement is palpable. For most of your aspiring pilots, this will be their introduction to the skies — the keystone to their lifelong love of drones. With these invigorating STEM lessons and permanent social and technical skills under their belts, you’re laying the groundwork for endless career and high education opportunities.
Now, it’s not life or death by any means, but how you handle classroom flight time — especially the first few trips to the flight field — has a huge impact on how your students perceive their drone education. It doesn’t need to be the end-all-be-all, but a well-run UAV experience makes all the difference — not only to the students, but especially to the educators.
