Enhancing our children's S.T.E.A.Meducation is imperative to their success and will help them become innovators of the future.
S.T.E.A.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, andMath.
By integrating these concepts into our children's educational lives (in school and at home), we hope to give them the tools to become better at:
We can't possibly explore National Aviation month without discussing drones. Drones range from being fun gifts for both adults and children, to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) used by the military. Most of us have probably seen a drone buzzing around at a park or in your neighborhood, but do we understand how they fly?
How they work
There are two types of drones:
Fixed-wing droneshave simple, aerodynamic structures that allow them to fly for long periods of time at high speeds.
Rotarty dronesusually have 4, 6 or 8 propellers. Rotors spin and push air downward, which pushes up on the rotor to result in vertical ascension allowing it to hover! It is ideally used for exploring tight areas.
