Woz ED and NPS-DDP are proud to announce their partnership supporting the Woz ED STEM outreach program. This partnership will provide drone access to students to enhance their knowledge base. As new technology comes in and older drones get shelved, recycling donated drones will assist STEM programs across the country.
Woz ED is the leading organization dedicated to driving excellence in STEM programs including Drone Technology the unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) industries with a core mission through voluntary donations from the private, corporate, and community sectors, NPS-DDP seeks to provide public safety departments nationwide with UAV/UAS technology with their mission to provide “Eyes in the Sky for Every Department in Need.”
Offering 5 levels of Drone education Woz ED is a model for incorporating the engineering process in the K-12 classroom and accelerating the path to employment for students who choose drones as a career. Students start with an introduction to aviation in Kindergarten and transition to physics of flight and flight skills in middle school. Students may choose elective courses in the Junior and Senior year to enroll in a drone course where students learn the engineering behind a Drone, as well as earn their certification. The certification will make the students employable as they leave high school.
While NPS-DDP appreciates each donation received from both private and corporate sectors, these donations may not be sufficient for deployment into the field. The strategic partnership between Woz ED and NPS-DDP will afford the opportunity to launch and implement the Drones for Education program that will assist Woz ED in procuring the technology for this program.
The mission of NPS-DDP was founded by Airborne Works with a focus to recruit others to help support our national public safety departments nationwide with UAV/UAS technology through voluntary donations, be it hardware, financial and/or media support from the private, corporate and community sectors.
Together we can help support those who give so much. The goal is to help put “eyes in the sky for every department need” ™.
