STEM Drones was developed by physics teacher Joe Warwick in Bucks County, PA. With over 30 years of remote control experience and 27 years in the classroom, Joe has created a hands on program to bring drone technology into the classroom. The curriculum and kit are based on 15 years of running a Physics and Flight STEM Summer camp.
He was one of the first in the country to earn his FAA Remote Pilot Certificate (Part 107 commercial UAV license) and has several years of experience in the industry. He has developed curriculum and training for police and fire departments to build their own sUAS Units (small unmanned aerial vehicle). He serves local Law Enforcement Agencies to fly over and record accident and crime scenes.
Joe has a B.S. in Physics with a Minor in mathematics from Virginia Tech and his M.Ed. in Science and Mathematics Education from Lehigh University. He worked for a decade with ETS and the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards as an assessment developer and scoring director throughout the country. Joe is the recipient of the Siemens AP Math and Science Award in 2010.
