Illinois Central College is bringing drone programming to the classroom. At the historically agricultural-focused institution, Blake Lehman, Associate Professor of Agriculture, is looking to bring agronomy education into the 21st century with courses tailored towards expanding students’ knowledge of precision agriculture and with it, drone technology. To prepare students for the workforce, Professor Lehman teaches career-specific classes introducing his pupils to new technology in the autonomous machinery space. From learning about site-specific crop management or higher resolution crop health, to monitoring different crops during the growing season and understanding flight plans, to pulling out images for further inspection, DroneDeploy serves as Professor Lehman’s essential learning tool. Through DroneDeploy’s Drones for Good partnership with ICC, we’re expanding drone use pre-graduation, in order to expand students’ career options within agriculture.
