Mr. Rector from Beebe AR is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Extending Drone Flights

My students need drone accessories to get more flight time from our new DJI Spark drone.

My Students

My students come from low income backgrounds. They do not have the opportunity to experience very much technology outside of the classroom. I have made it a goal of mine to introduce as much technology as possible to them so they may have a well rounded education prior to entering the real world as young adults.

Our school is a community that serves many military families from the Little Rock Airforce base.

We try to tie in how engineers have a role to play in the military as well as civilian life. This gives my students the ability to see how engineering could help them later in life even they chose to follow in their parents footsteps.

My students love hands on activities and projects. About 90% of my class is project based learning. This creates enthusiasm in the classroom and allows students to learn through experiences and not just direct instruction.

My Project

We are in need of extra batteries for our DJI Spark drone so we can get extended flight time to film and document our projects. With these extra batteries we hope to get close to an hour of flight time with charged batteries. We are also in need of a protective case to ensure there is no damage to the drone when traveling to and from projects.

We also need propeller protectors so we do not break our props in the case of a crash.

This is also a safety concern encase the drone flies close to someone. These accessories should increase our drone usage in class.
