Denver7: Vista Peak Exploratory School in Aurora adds drones to its curriculum

Story excerpt:

"The library inside Vista Peak Exploratory School in Aurora isn't just for reading and research anymore. Every once in a while, it's turned into an airspace for drones.

Technology teacher Kimberly Culhane has been watching the evolution of technology over the years. She came up with the idea to teach her students the practice of piloting a drone.

'Drone use has actually increased in all sorts of industries,' she said. 'It’s becoming very exciting. It’s opening up lots of possibilities for future careers.'

Culhane sets up different stations during class. In turn, students navigate their drones through an obstacle course in the middle of the library.
