Drone Demo by York County Rover Team

Drone Technology Demonstration at JBMS

JBMS students had the opportunity to learn about drone technology and view a demonstration by the York County Fire and Life Safety Department’s Rover Team as part of an introduction to the newly created Genesis Drone Academy. The Genesis Drone Academy program is designed by William Capers, In School Suspension Aide at James Blair Middle School; Archie Jefferson, Student Advancement Coach at Lafayette High School; and Eric Stone, a retired Williamsburg Firefighter.

The program includes an academic curriculum that facilitates the early learning process of sixth, seventh and eighth-grade students to help them understand drone technology as a tool and future career option. WJCC Schools’ Career Technology Education and Science teachers will incorporate Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in their curriculum to expand student understanding of how drones relate to science, physics, robotics and, in particular, aeronautics.

The Genesis Drone Academy also includes an after-school program with the sole objective of preparing students to take and pass the FAA Part 107 Aeronautical Knowledge Test, which a student can take their junior year of high school.
