Weather – Verticals Youth Empowerment Center Update!
Hi, Orion Drones wants to bring drone services to your town, your next event, your business, to you! We are passionate about photography, aeronautics, inspections, and drone service integration. We bring you news and views here on the blog roll each week on Tuesday at 8:26 am EST, 13:26 UTC. Thanks for visiting!

How It’s Going: Update
Classes start tomorrow. I am busy with resource development. I am going to teach drone cinematography.
Verticals is a local community development center that hopes to energize Brownsville’s future with after-school programs that enrich young lives and provide a sense of pride in community. A link to the group is provided.
I signed on as a drone coach and kicked them some material for training modules. I was going to teach kids how to fly recreational drones, get the manadatory – and EASILY OBTAINED – TRUST flyer certificate from the FAA, online, for free, and then get down to business. I was going to teach them how to make a video with a drone. We would go over flight plans, cinematography, operations, editing, and then presentation. This module was planned to integrate seamlessly within a larger ecosystem of courses in technology applications, physical well-being, and business development. These are hands-on tangible experiences.
Topics in the Verticals Youth Empowerment program include artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, drones, digital fabrication, coding, media production, design studio, blockchain, and crypto. They are presented alongside fitness and wellness resources. Verticals Youth Empowerment Center is designed to stimulate young minds, give parents an inclusive environment in which to socialize, and to offer youth a sense of pride in themselves and their community.
My involvement in the program is a six-week schedule where I teach a class for an hour every Wednesday. I hope to provide material to be used at other Verticals locations.
Spring is almost here
I hope to get some feedback from the kids and contribute the findings to an article later this Spring, to commemorate my first year at Orion Drones. My biggest obstacle is ignorance. Technical communication like mine is meant to provide a bridge between people separated by technological forces. New physics is rarefied. It takes a lot of work to get excited about very complicated things. Obviously, automation is going to arise.
Astronomy went through a necessary eccentricity, It pandered to the heliocentric, and then to a multiverse, always placing an origin further away, but nevertheless strengthening study around the certainty of a theoretical beginning, that everything can be derived with respect to time. The Earth was the center. Scratch that. The sun was the center. Scratch harder. The universe was expanding from the Big Bang. Where was the Bang? In relation to what? In what way will a better understanding of a 10-D or an 11-D universe going to affect kids here? I have to lay some groundwork somehow. What I am looking at now are models where certain velocities related to Lagrangians are replaced by momentum, where energy is conserved. The turbulence between classical and quantum physics is where the action is, where the spooky things at a distance live.
Ain’t nobody got time for that. Putin needs to hang up his spurs and go home. An ill wind blows.

I became a drone technology service integration researcher in 2017 while in university. When I am not working on drones, I am researching related scientific reports and industry news, flying drones, or tinkering with electronics. Contact me for information about services.
