ALC Aviation Drones Class Takes a Field Trip to Zipline

Submitted by shelley.heaton on

We're thrilled to announce that our two Intermediate Drone classes had the fantastic opportunity to take a field trip to Zipline. This company is at the forefront of technology, using drones for package delivery in Utah in partnership with Intermountain Healthcare. They deliver prescriptions right to a person's backyard!

Our students were given a firsthand experience of the process of launching and recovering the drones, also known as 'zips'. They also learned about the precautions and measures taken to ensure these drones do not interfere with other aircraft. This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to see how the theoretical knowledge they gain in the classroom can be applied in the real world. The excitement on their faces was priceless!

Submitted by shelley.heaton on


On Wednesday, 13 March 2024, we had a special guest, Kennedy Murphy, who traveled all the way from Arkansas to speak to our Drone (UAS) class about the Zipline drone company. Kennedy works with Zipline, a company renowned for their innovative drone technology that's making a real impact around the world.

She offered our students a deep dive into the workings of Zipline, explaining how their drones operate and the vital roles they play in delivering critical supplies to remote areas around the globe. The session was incredibly informative and exciting, and our students were thrilled to learn about the practical applications of the drone technology they're studying.

Anatomy and Physiology Cow Eye Dissection Lab

Submitted by shelley.heaton on

Today students from Ms. Suzette Hartvigsen’s Advanced Health Science  embarked on a fascinating journey into the world of visual biology. Ever wondered where the retina is located, what vitreous humor is, or where the optic nerve is positioned? Today, our curious young minds found answers to all these questions and many more.

Our innovative Anatomy and Physiology Cow Eye Dissection Lab was a tremendous success. Students had the opportunity to dissect real cow eyeballs, offering them a hands-on, interactive learning experience. This in-depth exploration allowed them to look closely at the components of the eye and understand their functions.
