Welcome to the Auxier Drone Club!
Register for Auxier Drone Club here! (Closed)
The Auxier Drone Club is open to 5th and 6th grade students at Auxier Elementary School. Students will learn to safely pilot a quadcopter drone as well as explore the science and physics of flight! We will learn about the rules and regulations of drone flight and focus on the basics of drone operation. Students will create courses and challenges to practice real-world drone applications. Finally, we will research and explore ways drones are used in a variety of business and government applications. Approved drones will be provided. Contact Mr. Landon with any questions!

DAY 4 - Begin researching real-world challenges and continue drone operation.
Visit these sites and pick your top three uses for drones.
Or, come up with your own! Be creative!
Write the three uses on the back of your flight packet
and at least one new fact you learned about it.
Finally, begin to think and design how you would replicate / repeate those
uses here in our Lab using our drones.
You have until 8:00
DAY 5 - Finalizing research and data collection for real-world uses of
drones and preparing real-world challenges.
Finish experimenting and collecting data on test flights.
Finish preparing final projects for presentations on Day 7.
