With Brave Wings She Flies

Help make 1,000 girls’ dreams come true. Donate today.

21st Century Challenges

Technology and Drones

  • Drone technology is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and standardized drone training for pilots and technicians is in dire need.
  • The future of work is changing as well and the availability of  skilled employees is lagging.

Women in Industry

  • Women make up less than 29% of the workforce in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and hold a mere 7% of all jobs in the drone and aviation industry

Girls in STEM

  • Girls have lower self-confidence in their STEM abilities which contributes to  the gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

21st Century Solutions

21st Century Workforce Skills

Current employers are seeking new adaptive skills in prospective employees

  • Creativity
  • Critical Thinking
  • Collaboration
  • Communication

These skills are the cornerstones of STEM Education for real world problem-solving!

Girls, Drones and STEM

Learning how to fly drones safely and professionally teaches these skills to girls. Drone education also exposes them to a variety of STEM subjects, such as:

  • Aviation Physics
  • Earth Science/Weather
  • Engineering Drone Models
  • Geospatial Mapping  
  • Computer Science and Coding

Remote Pilot Certification

Minimum Age Requirement: 16 years

  • 1,000 Drones for 1000 Girls focuses on drone education for Middle School and High School aged students.
  • Girls in this program could graduate from high school  with their Remote Pilot Certification

Partnerships are the Key!

One in a Million

What if 1,000 people supported 1 girl’s dream to fly drones, and each of those girls went on to supported 1 other girl. Imagine the possibilities!

1 becomes 1,000 which  soon becomes  100,000 and before long, there are 1 million!

Girls and drones – the sky is the limit!

  • Drones, Mapping and Underwater “Meadows”
    Usually when we think of meadows, we think of grassy places with flowers and butterflies. But did you know there are grassy meadows underwater as well? Drones are one way to map these meadows.
  • How Safe are You and Your Drone?
    Accidents happen. That is a fact of life. But when accidents happen with drones, the consequences could be huge. That is why there is a day dedicated to Drone Safety Awareness! This year it is Saturday, June 18th
