PCS EDVENTURES ANNOUNCES DRONE PROGRAM EXPANSION INTO MULTIPLE STATES
Discover Drones Learning Solution Seen by Educators as a Powerful Student Career Program
Boise, Idaho, November 2, 2017 — PCS Edventures!.com, Inc., (PCSV) a leading provider of K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs today announced additional Discover Drones program sales into new states confirming the need for coast-to-coast drone education. Since the program began shipping in April, it has now spread to 25 U.S. states and territories including AK, AL, AZ, CA, CT, DE, FL, HI, ID, KS KY, MN, MT, NJ, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, SD, TX, UT, VA, WA and Puerto Rico.
There are a number of significant factors driving the success of the program: 1) First Person View (FPV) Drone racing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world; 2) Drone racing is a highly engaging activity that is a perfect tool for teachers seeking solutions to student recruitment into technology education programs; 3) Drone technology is a rich platform for teaching STEM topics; 4) the skills acquired through technical drone education are applicable to the hundreds of new careers evolving in the rapidly growing, multi-billion dollar drone industry.
A recent Goldman Sachs research report projects the drone industry to exceed $100Bn by 2020 with far-ranging career opportunities in construction, defense, cinematography, agriculture, insurance, fire, police, journalism, utilities, real estate and many other industries. High school students with drone operator training and a Part 107 commercial operators license are earning over $50/hour in summer jobs, indicating the extraordinary demand for these skill sets.
Alexandra Monjar, PCS Director of Sales and Marketing, said, “because of the extensive real-world applications and career opportunities, the Discover Drones program has broad appeal to after-school and technical education programs with funding sources ranging from private donors, corporate sponsors and state and federal grant programs. Our sales staff is thrilled to be representing this product line and are experiencing a highly positive reception from customers across the nation.” Interested parties can learn more about the Discover Drones program by watching the product video here: https://vimeo.com/200233227
Todd Hackett, CEO of PCS Edventures!, said, “we are focusing our resources on becoming more efficient at selling, fulfilling and supporting this important initiative for the company, as I see it as an incredible opportunity for PCS and our shareholders. Although there are now other competitors beginning to sell drone education programs to schools, our Discover Drones program is by far the most advanced and comprehensive due to our unique combination of in-house STEM expertise and our in-house Thrust-UAV drone business unit.”
