Hi all,

Just got an email from Ben Blackwell, a high school student in Gastonia, North Carolina.

He wants to start a drone club at his high school, and he launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund it.

Thought this was a nice project, and I felt good about sharing it with the UAV Coach community.

Here's the link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gastonia-nc-teen-drone-club--4/x/13240473#/

Thanks for sharing! I just checked this link out, and although they didn't reach their target funding amount, the premise is a great one that I would love to implement in my kids' high school.

Is there an interest at the high school level beyond just mere curiosity for piloting sUAVs?

@tayman0522 I am actually one of those two teachers who will be running a course next year at a public school in MA. I developed the curriculum for my class from scratch so that i could ensure alignment with NGSS, 21st centruy, and common core curricula frameworks.

 Some very interesting news from the FAA yesterday on the educational sphere can be found here: http://www.faa.gov/uas/regulations_policies/media/Interpretation-Educational-Use-of-UAS.pdf 

Kudos for the article from @Alan Perlman about the FAA's announcement from the AUVSI conference (Xponential)!

Also @Bill Kaiser, this should help aleviate a lot of your paper work and beurocracy issues regarding the 333 / COA
