Students compare satellite images with photos they take with a UAV (drone).

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Fly a drone to monitor a volcano in this board game that teaches engineering practices.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Measure the speed of a flying UAV (drone).

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Measure and calculate the height (altitude) of a flying UAV (drone).

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students learn basic maneuvers with a UAV, flying forward and back, left and right.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students begin to learn basics of flying UAVs/drones. This simple initial flight includes a take-off, hovering at different heights, and landing.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students learn basic aviation terminology and practice flying with a mock flight simulator in preparation for flying a UAV or "drone".

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students test a glider's launch design, payload, and atmospheric wind conditions that could favorably or negatively impact the pilot's intention to provide rescue supplies to a mountain community in need.  

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students plan a disaster relief mission employing a UAV (drone) by filling in a comic book-like storyboard of engineering design steps.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

This activity uses stacks of blocks to demonstrate how a parallel-processing computer can complete calculations more quickly than a single, serial processor.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students will fly their UAVs over a scale-model town that has been struck with a disaster, surveying the damage via a camera on the UAV.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students deliver a payload (representing disaster relief aid) using a UAV (drone) after designing a skyhook to carry and release the payload.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students use a UAV to pick up and carry a small payload, retrieving it from the far side of the room. Students design a "sky hook" to grab the payload.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students test the battery life for UAVs ("drones") in preparation for more advanced "missions" and challenges.

Engineering, Computers, and Modeling

Students test the ability of a UAV ("drone") to lift and carry a weight. The weight simulates a payload, such as sensors or supplies, transported by the UAV.
