In what is certain to be a first for the industry, Stampede, the global leader in value added ProAV distribution, today announced that it is teaming up with DJI TELLO EDU to showcase the applicability of drones in K-12 STEM/STEAM programs with ongoing live demonstrations at next week’s InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Florida.
What’s more, according to Stampede President & CEO Kevin Kelly, Stampede is offering the first 50 schools that order 10 DJI TELLO EDU drones between June 12 and July 31, 2019 ten (10) Online Drone Safety Course Trainings through Unmanned Vehicle University featuring DJI. To qualify, schools will watch a demo at InfoComm in Stampede booth #1329 to receive a voucher for the course. They can redeem the voucher when they purchase the 10 DJI TELLO EDUs after the show through their reseller. Each training has a value of $199.00.
“InfoComm has become a premier event for the education channel and we’re taking full advantage of this at this year’s show with an entire section of our 50’X50’ booth devoted to the channel and with a flying cage that demonstrates the unique capabilities of drones in education,” Kelly said today. “We expect a lot of educators will leave the show this year with a greater appreciation for what drones can contribute to their STEM/STEAM programs.”
TELLO EDU is an impressive and programmable drone that is perfect for education. Users can easily learn programming languages such as Scratch, Python, and Swift. With an upgraded SDK 2.0, TELLO EDU comes with more advanced commands and increased data interfaces. Complete with DJI’s flight control technology, TELLO EDU also supports Electronic Image Stabilization and enables users to write code to command multiple TELLO EDUs to fly in a swarm and develop amazing AI functions.
