Minority Outreach - UAS as a STEM Minority Outreach

The objective of this project is to provide two Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) Outreach approaches that use unmanned aircraft system's (UAS’s) as the central learning platform. The STEM topics will include fundamental related concepts and will include unique unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) related content. While a number of various approaches for STEM Outreach have been provided and discussed with the FAA: two specific approaches have been down selected for implementation: Phase I: UAS Educational Roadshows; and Phase II: UAS STEM Summer Camps. The specific objectives of this activity would be for students to learn about: (1) How a UAS flies (Physics of Flight); (2) Subsystems of a UAV and UAS; (3) How UAS are used; and (4) How the FAA is interfacing with UAS.
