Flinn Scientific, a provider of science lab materials and safety and STEM solutions for the K-16 education market, has announced the launch of a new DRONE application for its WhiteBox Learning STEM learning system, the company said.
The app will be used to teach middle and high school students about the principles of drone flight, vehicle control, and quadcopter flight as they utilize an extensive suite of virtual modeling and simulation tools to design a drone. Once their design is complete, students can move on to the build phase with hands-on materials supplied by Flinn Scientific.
Flinn Scientific supports STEM/STEAM educators in opening young minds to the challenges and joys of scientific discovery and the design thinking process. Flinn Scientific also provides learning systems and professional development that incorporate differentiated digital experiences with hands-on learning grounded in the real-world to help all students think critically, explore like scientists and engineers, and solve problems creatively so they are ready for college and careers in an increasingly technology-driven world.
