“I was in the very first group of researchers that started looking at drones,” said Cummings. “The human interaction, policy issues, design issues—I was way out in front of the drone community in terms of research. And because I had all this military experience, I understood the domain and how to talk the talk, and my research program took off very quickly.” -  http://www.pratt.duke.edu/node/4599 http://www.pratt.duke.edu/node/4599

“Together with our partner, Raytheon, we are committed to promoting STEM education throughout our region,” said Hall executive director Bryan Morry. “Kelly has such an obvious and deep commitment to all of her students and also to STEM education as a whole. We chose five finalists who were all outstanding, but the work Kelly is doing to promote STEM education through her engagement with students and colleagues is extraordinary. We are proud to recognize someone who is having profound impact on STEM in Massachusetts.” -  http://thehallatpatriotplace.com/news-article/640/powers-named-halls-stem-teacher-of-the-year http://thehallatpatriotplace.com/news-article/640/powers-named-halls-stem-teacher-of-the-year

"....As for Bainbridge, we're only just talking about it now however using drones as data gathering tools, autonomous pre-programmed robots or even high performance racing bots are all up for grabs.  These devices offer strong technology skills as well as challenging our sensibilities of what civil society is willing to accept as a 'disruptive' change in the patterns of our lives.

looking for any good Solidworks engineers to help with a collaboration effort to design, and build a new generation of UAV in the future. all great minds are welcome to help. A think tank for progression. base guidelines of this project. HHO generator (fuel for turbines) RC Jet turbines FPV system heavy payload capacity 50+ Lbs Flir System Sonar Doppler infrared Rfid Tracking Extreme Long distance Radio (possible cell signal hybrid) if any of this sounds up your alley PM me for info.

i understand that i may be new to this field of research but why has no one used a HHO generator on a drone using rc turbine engines instead of dinky electric motors?
