Roborts, drones, controllers, and everything in between. Students are doing hands on learning.

"I like being with the people, this class isn't just about drones, it's about socializing," said sixth grader, Jake Sharp.
Freshman, Julieta Solis said she's even become more confident, "this has helped me be more concentrated on things I need to focus on."

Tech instructor Mike Flannigon said these will be a great tool for students, so our students who are more engaged in class will be able to participate more, do better in class, and be better successful in class overall."
