(Intern) Drone Curriculum

was awarded in 2020, and our goal is to reimagine high school for the 21st century and make STEM/CS equity gaps disappear.
We've been helping design the (supported by NFL player Travis Kelce) and its curriculum for urban kids in Kansas City.

We’re helping school districts reimagine high school for the 21st century where students:

Recreate Ancient Civilizations in Virtual Reality in World History class
Use Natural Language Processing to understand poems in English
Control a Drone Swarm in Precalculus to spell out words or make shapes
Use Motion Capture to Track Sports Performance in Physics class

We're looking for two people who can work together to design 3-4 drone-based projects for high schoolers.

The first couple will be intro projects that highlight surprising drone applications (e.g. surveying a field or scanning a 3D model using photogrammetry).
The next few will be more advanced controls (e.g. path planning or swarms).
As a curriculum developer, you will be designing projects for high school students to create.
If you ever wanted to be like Mark Rober, Jeremy Fielding, or Dianna Cowern (Physics Girl), this will be right up your alley.
Bonus if you've been a TA.
If this vision where high school comes to life and STEM/CS equity gaps disappear aligns with your skills and passion, please apply by Oct 31.
We will conduct interviews between Oct 29 and Nov 4.
This is a part-time lab role during the school year, with the option to be full-time during the summer.
