Agenda for today:

  • Discussion about Ebook production

  • Preston has a new job! Not sure if he’ll be able to continue the ESIP Education.
    • Therefore need someone to step up for eBook shepherding

NSTA conferences

  • Using slides from NSTA Denver Forum as foundation
  • Checking back with NSTA that they received the safety confirmations (they have)
  • Decision: by NSTA - Need draft activity materials to share with participants
  • (done) Check back by Oct 5 to see if we are a go on Portland. - yes

UCAR and drones

  • Margarette - response - Randy Russel - UCAR
  • Some of the activities are similar to our activities (which is fine)
  • They will have a summer camp vs ESIP putting out an eBook
  • They also have a simulation with drones to do aerial survey of a disaster area


  • Looked at DISSCE as a template
  • For now there is a log-in until the new server is finished being updated. DICCE demo” for user and “climate” for password, - -
  • geared to be a lesson plan interface. Shareable and modifiable. We will show this as a 'formal' example in survey.
  • eBook Requirements
    • graphic design
    • kid friendly
  • Guidance about the ebook and content: We are being opportunistic - the bull’s-eyes is that the educators have learners who have drones - and they know how to fly - and want to do something with the drone.

Action items:

  • 4 activities ready by October 28 -
  • Meet weekly to prepare.
