#** Completed our Strategic Planning discussion and will post results this week.
 
#** Held our first Webinar, Using Recreational Drones for STEM, on March 22: We had 37 very engaged participants
 
#** Our pre-webinar survey indicates that participants are interested in using recreational drones to gather data, and also to learn about how drones are used in professional settings. The most frequent answer about how they hope to use drones for learning is in after-school clubs. Also, participants identified "sufficient professional development" as the thing that would motivate them most to begin using drones for teaching and learning.
 
#** Next Webinar is two weeks from Today: April 26 @ 4 PM EDT. Title is Plan, Fly, Review: Documenting Drone Data.
