Some students are natural pilots, and some will be pushing outside their natural comfort zones. That’s okay! Purple has two flight challenges for students to master before moving on to FPV piloting in Blue: staying in control of the drone flying LOS for at least 2 minutes and flying forward and backward through a large gate. Students are free to progress at their own pace. Challenge your advanced pilots to become positive peer coaches for other members of their teams. How will you teach the end design project (EDP)? This is an opportunity for students to exercise their creativity, integrate their learning into areas that are particularly interesting to them, building their 21st Century skill set. Introduce the project to the group all together, then be sure to step back, help students focus in on a plan for their project and let them take ownership of the process. Making this a team project is a great way to build collaborative communication
