Instructor Prep for Discover Drones

Are you interested in Discover Drones, but you want to get some flight experience yourself before committing to the complete program?

Are you a current Discover Drones educator who would like a personal drone kit to test and practice with the RubiQ drone before taking students to the flight field?

The Instructor Drone Kit includes everything educators need to develop their own piloting skills without pulling from the student materials. Whether you’re just getting started with UAVs or you want to add the extra drone to your existing Discover Drones lineup, this single-drone kit is the perfect solution.

Curriculum Topics

Educator Guide:

The Discover Drones curriculum centers itself around a single, unified instructor resource: The Educator Guide. As the Rosetta Stone to classroom preparation, progression and facilitation, the
Educator Guide is the handbook on becoming a drone ambassador and expert pilot. Housing instruction and guidelines for student, flight field and battery safety, as well as detailed resources for aiding students through the 20 cards of building, training, flying and real-world connections, the Educator Guide provides instructors with the confidence and ability to dive into the STEM content and lesson plans with the same level of excitement as the pilots-to-be!

As the one-stop-shop on all safety guidelines, assessments and resources for explanation and facilitation, the Educator Guide is the instructor's roadmap to the future of drones.

FPV Freerider:

FPV Freerider is a top-of-the-line flight simulator for pilots-in-training. As a critical part of the Discover Drones curriculum, logging hours on the flight simulator allows learners to hone their piloting skills without running the risk of crashing a real drone!
