Classroom Drone Essentials

Engage more students in STEM, with microdrones.

Our foundational drone education  program “Classroom Drone Essentials” has been developed by teachers and drone industry experts to help more teachers teach with drones in schools. Drones are not only an innovative and versatile teaching tool for STEM subjects, they equally appeal to both boys and girls and therefore help to engage a greater diversity of students.  All materials are aligned with the Australian curriculum and are regularly updated. 

This drone education program is suitable for both primary and secondary students, and combines teacher professional learning and student engagement activities to provide the foundational skills for teachers and students to then run some of our more advanced units of work. Classroom Drone Essentials has been taught face-to-face to almost 9,000 students and teachers around the world, and over 1,500 teachers are trusting our online resources. 

There are three ways teachers can engage in this drone program, varying in the degree of support offered: Our membership gives access to our online portal of on-demand teacher professional development resources and classroom activities (units of work) and is most suitable for those already familiar with drones. Online Together combines the membership with one-on-one online sessions with a She Maps educator, to go through key sessions in more depth and provide an opportunity for a more tailored approach. Our face-to-face student incursions offer the ultimate level of support by having a She Maps instructor visit your school and showing you first hand how we run our Classroom Drone Essentials program, so that you can replicate it for future classes. We recommend this option for teachers that don’t have access to drones or want to inspire students and colleagues before purchasing drones.

What Other Teachers Say

We help teachers of all confidence and skill levels by making teaching with drones easy.

“I’d recommend She Maps to any school looking to promote STEAM Education and/or 21st Century Learning skills to their program. Whilst I was initially a little bit nervous about my drone and ICT knowledge, Katie and the team from She Maps made life very easy and build my understanding, knowledge and confidence so that I was ready to introduce drones to my Year 5 students,. The workshops will provide you with all the skills you need to successfully introduce, engage, and instil a passion for using drones in real life situations and learning about and interpreting GIS whilst simultaneously developing a range of 21st century skills in students without them even realising!”

“Thanks to She Maps, I can now fly a drone and have many ideas on how I can use drones to enhance learning. I now have the confidence to use drones to create meaningful programs which are connected to community and provide my students with the forever skills needed for our future world.”
