Do you work with high school students, or are you in high school yourself?

If so, today's interview with Jeremy Jackson, a teacher at St. Charles West High School in St. Charles, MO, might be of interest.

In 2019, St. Charles West received a $10,000 Grow Rural Education Grant. In the interview we cover how Mr. Jackson helped build a drone program at his school using some of the grant money, and other ways the awarded funds were useful in supporting his students' STEM education.

This is a great initiative and starting the to train students while they are in high school is an important step forward for the future of the drone profession. 
Here in Zimbabwe, we started a similar project in 2018 through my drone company and we have been going around to different schools locally and teaching students about drone technology using Parrot Mambo drones and racing drones. We teach them how to assemble drones from scratch with racing drone parts and then teach them how to fly them once they are assembled, lastly we switch over to the Parrot Mambo to teach them about coding and programming drones. This is a great way to teach STEM subjects in a practical way.
