Nevada NASA Space Grant Launches Far-Reaching Program

Nevada teachers took part in a program to promote interest in STEM fields using drones. The project partners included Nevada State College (NSC), the Desert Research Institute (DRI), and Clark County School District (CCSD). The 25 in-service teachers received Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) training and participated in a lesson plan competition to use UAS to stimulate student interest in STEM fields. The winning teacher received a funded field trip to NSC for her AP physics class to receive hands-on practice with UAS.
