We are so pleased this mid November 2017 day to receive 10 separate reviews of our on-line course Drones for Engineers. All ten unsolicited reviews were by engineers paying to take the course to renew their licenses. We are humbled by the ten highest 5 star ratings. We pledge to keep the course current, and are glad we are so well received by our fellow engineers.

Drones for good: Tracking turtles via drone

After returning from a semester break, Boston College freshman, Branick Weix, had something unusual and inspiring to share: his weeklong trip to Costa Rica to help researchers track endangered sea turtles. Through his company, SkyLink Productions, the Minnesota native partnered with the nonprofit group Seeds of Change, and used an array of drones to help researchers study nesting turtles on a remote peninsula of the Central American country.
