Student-Created Drone Challenge
Our 5th graders recently completed a project using educational drones. The learning experience integrated technology, creative writing, critical thinking, and mathematics (among other important skills). Students worked with one of our technology teachers, Mr. Adam Hinnenkamp, to create original drone challenge courses. You can read about the #EduDroneChallenge project and how your students can participate HERE.
The video below features one group’s project. Kids created an original theme (Medusa’s Lair) and integrated learning targets into their challenge. I’m so proud of our students and continue to be inspired by the collaborative learning experiences our teachers are providing. Sometimes students are so immersed in their work that they express genuine disappointment when they have to go home or outside for recess. They don’t want to stop what they’re working on in school. You gotta love it!
