Rolf Stefani, senior director of ARINC's Technology Innovation Center, is in the classroom three to four hours a week, alongside technology education teacher Rob Tompkins. Before the Flame Wheel, students learned on a toy drone. Stefani tells Popular Science that the high school is planning some sort of competition for May, though the details are still being figured out. The real impact of the class may come well before any year-end aerial acrobatics: as part of the course, students must submit a business case for drone use. Here's hoping they avoid the gimmicks.
