We partner with many GEAR UP and TRIO programs nationwide to provide pathways for students to get certified as a Commercial Drone Pilot.
The drone industry is expected to increase to over $63 billion by 2025. As industries such as agriculture, construction, media and more are adopting drones, UAVs provide a growing opportunity for careers. Incorporating drones into the classroom not only encourages students to pursue a career in that field, but it also provides a great way to engage students in all subjects of STEAM!
