Some of you might know that one of my big passion is STEM education. STEM stands for "Science, Technology, Engineering and Math". But not only that - for the past almost 4 years I have been focusing on getting girls interested in STEM, showing them that they too can and should have careers in STEM fields. 

I have used class room visits, science fairs, hospital visits, social media tools and incorporated a mascot into reaching those target audiences. Camilla The Space Chicken has become a world-famous mascot, traveling the globe (and off the globe; 5 trips to the Edge of Space) to share her excitement about STEM!

Last summer I started to incorporate the DJI Phantom into my STEM education. Why? Because I can capture almost every kid's attention with this flying device and it allows me to talk about so many things; physics of flight, magnetism/brushless motors, radio frequencies, functionality of GPS and even camera technology. But most importantly, it's a fun tool that inspires.

A very dear friend of ours, Robyn, had been enjoying our posts and aerial images so much, that she got herself an original DJI Phantom. Having worked on NASA's Apollo missions, Robyn has an engineering mind and she made some amazing updates to her Phantom . Recently Robyn started flying a DJI Vision too. We have done a couple of outings with her and I am truly beyond excited to see her fly, smile and have a grande time!

Over the past few months I have been enjoying teaching female pilots the joy of flying a multi rotor. Here is Sarah flying for the first time and also enjoying the world around her, well, above her, through Zeiss goggles. As you can see, she has a huge smile on her face. A couple weeks later, Sarah who works on a NASA space mission herself, got her own DJI Vision and named her "Bessica". Welcome to the Club!

Thank you Laurie for this picture.
At the Photoshop World Top Gun class in Las Vegas I taught flying to four women and two. I was thrilled to have that many female pilots interested in learning how to maneuver these aerial platforms. Hands down, the female pilots outflew their male counter part! It was so much fun watching. 

Picture
Speaking of Laurie - Laurie, a very accomplished nature photographer, recently got into flying an aerial photography platform herself. Her DJI Vision has allowed her to capture very different views and given her a new dimension (pun intended) in her photography skills. 

Picture
Wendy got to fly a DJI Vision for her first time in Santa Cruz last weekend. Not only that, but with a little help she navigated my Vision perfectly to capture this awesome selfie. You can also see Mark kneeling and flying his Phantom 2. Wendy is also part of our NASA SDO team, doing formal education. 

Picture
Last week I met Nora Mieminski, a Stanford University PhD grad student. She saw me flying and asked me if I could help her with some questions about the DJI Vision. Needless to say, her and I ended up talking about this technology in great depth. 

Nora was about to board an airplane to New Zealand with her Vision to take aerial images of coastal sand stone beds. This was the first time I actually got to meet somebody who is using this new technology for real research purposes. Nora and I spent an early morning flying together and practicing a few maneuvers and "worst-case-scenarios" i.e. landing on a tree... today Stanford University shared her story via their social media outlets. I cannot wait for Nora to return and hear her experiences with the DJI Vision.
