High School in Arkansas Offering Drone Education


Many colleges and universities have recently implemented drone education into their curriculum, but now a high school in Beebe, Ark., is doing the same.

The Associated Press reports that with a $2,000 grant from NASA and the Arkansas Space Grant Consortium, Beebe High School will be offering classes that will give students the opportunity to build their own unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The school’s principal reportedly was inspired for the idea after seeing a “60 Minutes” segment about the aircraft and is looking to expand the program beyond just a one-year class.
