Nathan Hofflander, Drone Wise

Mr. Hofflander - Owner/Licensed UAS Pilot at DroneWise LLC has been teaching high school computer science and technology in Sioux Falls for 11 years. He has always been fascinated with flight and finally got a tiny drone as a gift from his wife while working at Sanford. He returned to teaching with the crazy idea of integrating drones with education. After being awarded a grant from the Sioux Falls Public Schools Education Foundation for The Volaré Project, the first high school drone program was established.

After strategically selecting and purchasing a small fleet of minidrones, the RHS Flight Club was established for students. Through Community Education, Mr. Hofflander wants to demystify drone technology for public interest and to promote the safe, responsible pursuit of using drones in our community. Drone technology has been integrated into two classes which exposes students to STEM education through programming and flight. Minidrones can be checked out by the building staff at Roosevelt for a variety tasks.

Mr. Hofflander is a husband and a proud father with four daughters and 1 baby boy at home who all must endure his love of drone activity. With drone technology, the Hofflander family photo just got more interesting.
