Everywhere you turn these days there are stories about drones and how they are going to change the way we live. The big question is how can schools leverage this interest?

Programmable and other entry level drones are now priced very keenly. Even higher level machines are being used productively in education settings. From developing understandings of the physics of flight through maths and engineering activities and onto aerial and even underwater data gathering, drones have a lot to offer students from middle school and beyond.

This session will explore some school based drone options and how they might be utilised as well as some of the safety considerations attached to drone use.
