Mr. Denton from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Taking Tech to the Sky!

My students need a transition from technology in the classroom where we are restricted to four walls and a ceiling, to the great outdoors, where the sky is the limit! The DJI Tello Drones are fully programmable!

My Students

My students attend school in SW Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. They are energetic, innovative and resilient. They enter my room each day eager to learn about Science and Technology in the world around them. 100% of our students fall below the poverty line and receive free and reduced-priced lunch and 84% of my students are Hispanic. Many of our students are English Language Learners and come to us 2-3 years behind academically.

I have made it my priority to make sure all of my students see that school is relevant, a place where they can connect with the world around them and learn skills that will help prepare for their futures.

My Project

My students have become proficient in a variety of technologies. Specifically within the world of coding. Students have used software such as Scratch, Code.org, and Code Academy to study the language of computers. While this is great, we are always looking for ways to apply this knowledge in the real world, life beyond the screen.

DJI's Tello drones are fully programmable using a language that the students understand.

Tello uses the program called Scratch that allows the user to create their own code and action program to apply straight to the flying machines! Concepts like area and perimeter can be applied in a real-life scenario using these drones. This allows students to go beyond our usual robotics programs, and take technology into the skies!
