Kevin Siverston is an adjunct professor of unmanned aviation at Central Oregon Community College in Bend, Oregon. For the past ten years, Kevin has been immersed in the UAS industry, from convoy over watch and security flights to teaching students to operate quad copters safely. Kevin has developed a passion for this emerging field, most recently developing students’ skill sets in the areas of complex aerial operation, safety and regulation.
Victor Villegas does K-12 STEM/STEAM outreach education, using drones to teach youth STEM/STEAM concepts and spark interest in STEM/STEAM education and careers. Though he didn’t pursue a career in aviation, Victor keeps his love of flying going as a hobby, flying R/C airplanes, helicopters and drones. Victor’s biggest claim to drone fame is through his online alter ego DroneSinger, the “Weird Al” of drones – World’s #1 creator of parody songs about drones. He creates songs about drones to bring attention to drone issues and culture, while encouraging safe and responsible flying.
