We also provide businesses with video’s to enhance and promote their company, venue or facility.  Drones are shaping the next evolution in marketing.

Drone Safety

Certificate Of Completion Desi Ekstein successfully completed Gold Seal Remote Pilot Ground School

Certificate Of Completion

Safety is our first concern.   Desi Ekstein is a licensed remote pilot and a student of the  FAA Safety Wings program.   Continued education is important in this fast changing industry.  We also offer a list of references to help you be a safe pilot.

When you fly your drone anywhere in the nation’s airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system. Under the law, your drone is an aircraft.  Drone operators are pilots and must fly responsibly and safely.   We have gone above and beyond to stay informed of the current safety regulations.

STEM / STEAM

Computer programming

STEM / STEAM …. A brighter future.

First…   What is it?  STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.   STEAM add “ART”.   I believe that art is an important part to the equation and drones are the perfect tool for the job.

The knowledge and enthusiasm that the students show towards new technology is amazing!   To start the program the students are handed a box of parts.   They build the drone, computer program the RC communication, make sure it can fly, and use Tinkercad to build replacement parts.Amazon

Women in Technology International (WITI) Summit 2016  in San Jose, CA.   SheDrones offered an opportunity for young girls to design, engineer, program and fly drone quadcopters.  Leslie Bates, the founder of SheDrones, Anne Lopez, the developer of the STEM education curriculum, Don E. Yeoman, audio visual, flight control and training assistant, and Desi Ekstein the sUAS flight operator and flight controller make up the team for SheDrones.  The goal of SheDrones is to empower students to pursue an education and career in science.   The program is designed to address the country’s need for more female innovators, employees, leaders and entrepreneurs in the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) industry.  The excitement and enthusiasm at the event was so high the students and adults wanted to get involved.

Starting with … what’s in the bag?  Curiosity was peaked when the brown paper bag was handed out and the first engineering design was set in motion.  The music went on and the tower build began.   The goal of the first exercise was to introduce the students to engineering discovery, design, create, and test concept by building the tallest free standing tower from the items inside the bag (a handful of small clear cups).   This is when the adults felt the students were having too much fun and wanted to join in.

Recently I had the privilege to talk with some students from the Athenian Middle School in Diablo, CA.   It was a great experience and I am very excited that they maybe implementing a Drone STEM program.  I’m lucky to share with others safety and “Fly Right”. So many of the students already have such enthusiasm in robotics.   I was very surprised when I walked in with my AR Parrot and one of the students knew exactly what it  was and knew all the specs.   🙂  I’m looking forward to working with more schools and I hope to see more female involvement through She Drones.
