Antonio, a 6th grader at Easton Middle School, recently learned how to program a drone flight sequence in his PLTW class. Antonio has enjoyed this general education class so much that he has requested four other PLTW classes for his 7th grade year.
PLTW provides a hands-on STEM curriculum which focuses on solving real world problems. During the drone lesson Antonio explained, “You have to code directions into an iPad, which then tells the drone what to do. You can tell it to do flips and fly around all crazy!” Students were able to fly the drones through hula-hoops hanging from the ceiling and competed in races down the school hallway. Our students are very lucky to have access to such advanced technology!
