Summary
Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), may seem like something out of a science-fiction novel. But in fact, civilian drones are a kind of technology that is becoming increasingly present in our everyday lives. This title uncovers the science and technology behind civilian drones. Readers learn the history of this technology, how it works, and how it's used. The text's science and technology concepts complement STEM classroom concepts. Fact boxes, simple diagrams and detailed photographs make complex topics easy to understand. The next time readers see a civilian drone in the sky, they'll know for sure what it is.
