Drone - the Unsession

Interested in seeing what these toys are all about? Interested in showing off your own drone? Want to gather more ideas on how to use drones in your classroom or lessons?

Weather permitting, this session will be 50% in the classroom and 50% outdoors.  

Whether you use drones or not, this session will be a collaboration of things we have learned over the past year of using drones in the classroom. We welcome pilots alike (or those dreaming of becoming quadcopter pilots) to come share their experiences, bring questions you have come across, or just to sit and learn from the discussion!
