As the landscape of educational technology evolves, it’s vital for STEM teachers to stay informed about the latest tools and resources available for enhancing student learning. With recent announcements suggesting a shift in DJI’s focus away from its STEAM Education division, including the suspension of sales for products like the Tello drone, educators might be concerned about the future of these resources in their curriculum.

However, DroneBlocks is here to reassure educators of our unwavering support for the DJI Tello series drones. Our commitment is not only continuing but deepening, with an array of resources designed to integrate seamlessly into your STEM curriculum.

In-Depth Support for Tello Drones

DroneBlocks remains dedicated to supporting all models of the DJI Tello series drones through our comprehensive, free coding application.
