Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus offers drone program for teens
The drone program is called UAS Virtual Academy and is meant for kids ages 14-17. The program aims to teach students foundational aviation skills, flight maneuvers, safety procedures, photography, and videography basics. As well as mentorship from K-State Polytechnic staff and students.
The program is quite inexpensive at $49 for one week (June 22-26). A drone is not included so student will have to bring their own unmanned aircraft.
After registration, students will receive an instruction kit including a logbook and landing pad.
The drone program consists of online lessons and flight training that can be done at a time and place convenient for the student. Industry experts will also be offering insight into potential careers.
After successfully completing the course a special achievement package will be received through the mail. Credits can be transferred to a collegiate UAS program if desired.
Registration for this course closes on June 15 at noon. To register or see recommended drones for the class visit the K-State Polytechnic website. For more information contact professional education and outreach for the university at 785-826-2633 or email [email protected].
