In partnership with Sinclair Community College Unmanned Aerial Systems and Geography departments, the Dayton Regional STEM Center provides five introductory lessons for UAS Entrepreneurship. Each of these five lessons gives students a chance to envision and create a plan to start their own UAS business. The experience culminates in the students presenting their “elevator pitch” speeches for their UAS businesses. Each link below takes you to a folder with the associated lesson plan and resources.
Lesson 1: Introduction to Drones & UAS Technologies
Lesson 2: UAS Applications and Technologies
Lesson 3: Introduction to the Business Model
Lesson 4: The Elevator Speech (How to Pitch Your Ideas)
Lesson 5: The Elevator Pitch Competition

Aerial Sensing Data Analyst
In partnership with the Sinclair Community College Unmanned Aerial Systems and Geography departments, the Dayton Regional STEM Center provides four introductory lessons into the Aerial Sensing Data Analyst Pathway. Each of these four lessons will give high school students a glimpse into the career of an Aerial Sensing Data Analyst, someone who uses data from unmanned aerial vehicles to map and make decisions about the world around them.
Lesson 1: SW Ohio Object Recognition
Lesson 2: Passive Sensors and the Algal Bloom Problem
Lesson 3: Healthy River Assessment
Lesson 4: Mapping Forest Carbon with LiDAR
Access to these lessons is free of charge due to the generous funding of the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education program.
