Know Before You Fly Student Drone Kits
These drone kits have been made available with federal funding and distributed by communication with the nation’s 25 largest school districts and other national organizations that support youth education. Kits help teach 9th- through 12th-grade students about science, aerodynamics, engineering principles, aviation principles, drones, and safe flying practices. Additionally, this effort encourages students to pursue careers in aviation-related fields. Each kit contains all of the necessary components and instructions to assemble a small drone, including goggles for optional first-person-view flying. This page houses resources for educators to use the kits with students. Questions? Contact KBYF_DroneKit@modelaircraft.org
