Drone Curriculum

iCEV has acquired Drone curriculum assets will expand the course library for STEM, Agricultural Science, Architecture, Construction & Manufacturing, as well as,  Law, Public Safety, Corrections & Security on the iCEV Platform. Founded by a former CTE educator, was created to offer a stand-alone curriculum option rooted in principles and concepts. The resource focuses on four primary areas: theory and design, flight skills, programming and preparation for the FAA Remote Pilot Certification Exam. Not only are these focus areas relevant to drone science, the knowledge and skills are also applicable to other CTE subject areas, specifically those related to programming and engineering and design. Because the content was written by a former educator, it is uniquely applicable to classroom use and designed to successfully teach drone concepts. Along with theory and practical application, each course will feature a career exploration component through career interviews with drone professionals across various sectors of the industry. 

The curriculum from will be implemented as three new iCEV courses. Explore courses and lesson lists below:
