First Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak brought the world Macs. Now he’s flying drones through K-12 classroom curricula. How cool did school just get?

Drones 101

This month, Wozniak’s tech-focused Woz ED educational organization announced its partnership with unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) specialist Draganfly. The pairing will involve Draganfly supplying drones and systems for use in Woz ED’s courses.

The move solidifies UAVs as a leading component of Woz ED’s education-through-tech curriculum, currently taught to over a half million kids.

The increasing capabilities and deployment of UAV in life and business across the globe made drones an inevitable addition to Woz ED’s STEM approach. By helping students learn to work with and around the craft, their thinking naturally evolves toward the kind of engineering outlook required in millions of both current and future jobs. 

Wozniak says the partnership will put over 3,000 drones to educational use this year alone.
