T3 & US Forest Service Team Up
T3 Alliance is “Teaching Through Technology.” In Wrangell, Alaska, students learned how to fly drones commercially, working in teams.
Six students from the T3 Alliance club in Wrangell, Alaska partnered with US Forest Service to use drones to check out the condition of the trails and cabins maintained by the Tongass National Forest.
The students created promotional videos and 360-Trail photos that they uploaded to Google Maps.
The purpose of this project was to share the Tongass with folks who don’t know about it, as well as report on the trail maintenance.
The photos and videos document current conditions. Students presented their final work on August 8, 2022 in person, as the first year of a 2-year project.
The students are continuing to plan for next summer, learning from some of their mistakes and successes this year.
Growth Mindset is integrated into the T3 Alliance club, where students acknowledge that failure is necessary to learn and grow.
