Go STEM Institute 2019: Exploring Earth With Drones

July 22-26, 2019
A.J. Read Science Discovery Center at SUNY Oneonta

Google Maps can show you any place on earth, and yet there is so much left to discover! Guided by satellites in space, remote-piloted drones have extended our ability to explore our world. And we discover new things every day: the ruins of civilizations lost to history, massive cave systems, and exotic new species of plants and animals. Drones can go where we can’t, and often see what we can’t. Institute participants will learn all about this revolutionary new technology, including the principles of coding, GPS, electronics, aeronautics, flight safety, and the career opportunities in the growing field of remote piloted vehicles. We’ll learn about some of the most exciting exploration and mapping projects out there, hear first-hand from people in the field, and log lots of flight time on our own drones! Institute participants will join in this new golden age of exploration, building skills and knowledge that lead up to a final project: remotely exploring a local natural area that’s hard to reach, except for drones!
