The STEMM Academy Drone Teams would like to thank Lieutenant John Merchant with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office. Lieutenant Merchant shared his time and expertise with the teams today by giving a presentation on the various ways the Sheriff’s Office uses drones in its operations. The students gained valuable insights into real-world applications of drones in the local community. Are you affiliated with a business or organization that uses drones? Please contact Drone Team Coach Dustin Crawley at hh4pizza@gmail.com if you would be interested in sharing your experience with STEMM students.

This past week, three of our Science and CTE teachers attended the IEEE RAPID conference. The goal of the conference was to connect government, industry, and academia in a global forum. These experiences are invaluable in strengthening our teachers’ knowledge and skills in preparation to fulfill STEMM’s own mission to develop our next generation of STEMM leaders. Thank you to the Office of the Chief Scientist, AFRL Munitions Directorate, Eglin AFB for sponsoring our teachers.
