With drones becoming mainstream in recent years, there has been a push to bring drones into education. Over the years, the shape of drones in education has evolved from its roots as a simple example to fascinate students about science, technology, engineering, art, and math; to a trade skill in a burgeoning unmanned aircraft industry; to an everyday data collection tool used for teaching other disciplines such as software development. The panelists will discuss the opportunities and challenges in their efforts to bring drones into education.
