What We Do

Create Unconventional Aviation/Drone experiences and help scholars be Career Ready!

Our world rapidly changes, and its imperative scholars have Real-World, Hands-On experience with today’s technology in real time.

Our Approach

We use aviation and drone technology as a platform to connect different fields of knowledge. We use interdisciplinary learning methods to do the following: 

  • Encourage critical thinking
  • To help scholars to see the meaningful connections that exist among the many disciplines.
  • Capitalize on natural and logical connections that cuts across content areas and are organized around questions, themes, problems, or real- world projects rather than along traditional subject-matter boundaries.
