Drone Operator Training At The High School Level

The next generation of drone operators will have an edge on you. It’s a fact. Why? Because programs like the one at Silver Lake High School in Nebraska. Silver Lake High School, after receiving a $1,000 grant, has already started teaching the core concepts of drone based precision agriculture.

Silver Lake was one of three schools to compete in the Nebraska Corn Board’s Ag Champions Program. Each school will be awarded a grant amount specified in their “agvocacy” plan budget, up to $1,000. As the top winner, Silver Lake will receive up to an additional $1,000 grant to support FFA.

Randa Klein, president of the Silver Lake FFA chapter, worked with FFA adviser Andrea Curlo for the project called “Ag-Static about Drones.” Silver Lake High School already had purchased a drone, or unmanned aerial vehicle, for use in other classes, so Curlo and Klein discussed ways that they could use a drone in a project.

This means you will need an edge to stay competitive in the emerging drone industry. That edge is education, and at Drone Universities, we can offer you the precision agriculture education you need.
