FOR SCHOOLS


21st-century students are in desperate need of authentic learning opportunities that link cognition and problem-solving with tactile skills for immediate and delayed gratification. We owe it to the next generation of thinkers to provide rich, genuine learning through activities and projects that provide infinite possibilities for curious minds.

The Drones 101 for Schools program provides teachers and staff with an introduction and familiarisation of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) as a potential stimulus and resource for genuine Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM); Media, Photography, Art & Design (MPAD) and Project Based Learning (PBL) opportunities for students.

CONTACT US if your school is interested in a free in-school drone flying demonstration, incursion programs or ‘in service’ teacher training. A TQI-approved teacher professional learning program for ACT teachers is available now… check out the FOR TEACHERS page to book the next workshop.
