TELLO Drones are coming to your REMC!
This summer REMC launched a brand new training course for teachers, “Coding and Drones.” This REMC project combines coding and the art of aerial drone control. This “train the trainer” event is designed to establish a network of “Coding and Drones” trainers across Michigan, and provide two complete drone kits to local area REMC. Much like the free Maker kits currently offered through local REMCs, the drone kits will also be available for teachers to borrow to determine if they are a good fit for their school program.

About REMC Classroom Makers
REMC Classroom Makers (#cmakers) provides local REMCs with maker training, curriculum and materials to be used with their districts to support and expand curricula and learning.
The Classroom Makers project believes that all humans are makers with the inclination and capacity to shape one’s world through building, tinkering, redesigning, or hacking. From the national stage to local Michigan classrooms, students can experience the integration of the maker ethos that reinforces engagement, student empowerment, curiosity, encourages a willingness to learn, and to create in a low-pressure environment.
