We are proud to work with our partner Eduscape and the Drone Racing League (DRL) to bring drones to remote education! The Drone Racing League launched their DRL Academy. DRL has engaged hundreds of students through live STEM sessions across the US, Middle East and Asia. The league has proven success in the classroom, and now offers unique opportunities to support students studying remotely. Committed to inspiring the next generation of drone pilots and innovators, DRL and Eduscape, as well as their partner New Jersey City University, will offer students complimentary access to:
- Drone Flying & Building Lessons on the DRL Simulator, a true-to-life drone racing SIM on Steam that integrates accurate drone physics, aerodynamics, and motion capture technology
- Digital STEM Panel Sessions with DRL’s world-class drone technicians and Eduscape leadership, who will share insights into the technology behind the immersive sport of drone racing and the future of robotics
- Live-Streamed Celebrity Guest Lectures with champion and all-star DRL Pilots, who are also engineers, scientists and content creators from around the world
Alex Urrea, Founder, and CEO of Eduscape, a New Jersey-based business, and a leader in STEM education and online teaching said the following on working with the Drone Racing League and a bit more about the program the DRL Academy will bring to schools.
“We are proud to work with DRL on this important step in giving students and teachers a unique opportunity as they forge deeper into the world of remote learning during this crisis. This initial program will give teachers a unique and innovative option as they look to integrate STEM programs into an online curriculum. It is engaging and fun, while providing practical applications of aeronautics, engineering design, and computer science and will lead to even more interest once we are back to normal as well.”
