Day 1 Morning Strand: Unmanned Aerial Vehicles & UPWARD BOUND

What could be more academically engaging and motivational to a student then building and flying their own quadcopter? Building a small Unmanned Aerial System Vehicle (UAV) students of all interests and abilities will learn all about the components of a quadcopter and progress through STEM (or STEAM, depending on your creativity) lessons by working through an eight stage challenging, which include, flying with a camera, heavy object lift, efficient flight, and agility through an obstacle course.


Brett Falke of HoverLabs, John Monahan, Director of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Modern Blanket Toss UAV project, Pam Lloyd from GCI, School Access, and students familiar with the project, will expertly guide participants through the building and flying of their own copter. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands on STEM project that was design, distance-tested and debugged first-hand in rural Alaska communities.
