School mates Deliver Helping Hand

Posted: Updated:

(KSDK) At Orchard Farm Middle School in St. Charles, Missouri when looking for a history or math class you might stumble upon something very different.

"It's called Innovation and Technology," explained teacher Eleanna Liscombe as a drone flies over her head.

Instead of textbooks, kids are leafing through the pages of their imaginations.

"They're not only encouraged to push their limits. They're required to," Liscombe said.

Two 13-year-olds, Tommy Dulle and Josh Butler, said they always look forward to this class because it gives them the chance to both geek-out and help out.

"Help the world, help yourself, help other people," Dulle said.

It turns out, one of those people Tommy and Josh could help was just a short drone flight away.

Natalie Baker is a second grader at Discovery Elementary.

By all accounts, this 7-year-old is bright, bold and big-hearted. She also has a congenital disability.

"So she faces a lot of challenges throughout her day with her school," explained her occupational therapist Kaitlin Bethel.
