This study uses UAV as a medium for sustainable education in environmental protection. In order to enhanced the concept of environmental awareness, to observe the current environmental quality is the best way to make students interested. However, the “environment quality” is very complicate phenomenon and hard to describe. How to convey this concept to the public, depends on the good tool for environmental education design. As UAV is an attractive tool which contains many interesting scientific factor, therefore, we developed this course by UAV. Both the air quality and water quality were measured by the new technology developed in this project. The water can be sampled by UAV for quickly measure, and the air quality was measured by the sensor attached in UAV. Thus the students can immediately identify the current environmental quality. Through the understanding of environmental quality, it is possible to improve the public attention to environment protection. As it is a very funny procedure, students can learn the knowledge of the environment from the game, especially for the environmental concepts such as air quality, suspended particulates, PM2.5, river water quality, and so on. Two pilot environmental monitoring projects were conducted, including the water quality measurement at Qingtang Garden in Taoyuan City and the air quality survey of the tunnel at Bei-Yi Highway. The measured results were then transferred to cloud for web education for more students. Thus the environmental quality can be expressed in a variety of ways, such as the time changes, spatial changes, and various statistical analysis results. During the teaching experiment, the student's response was also carefully recorded. Through this preliminary study, it is found that UAV can really arouse the interest of students, but also has a great effect for the motivation of environmental protection.
