We have 10 DJI Tello drones up for grabs that could be won by your students! 

Our Free Map My School competition is based entirely online – no drones required.  Students not only learn to create a map using professional industry conventions, they also help solve real-life problems, such as how much shade their school has.

The 3 steps involved in the competition correlate to 1 unit of work for teachers (and a some peace and quiet for parents). There’s a full teacher pack brimming with explainer videos, activity sheets, and your curriculum-mapped unit of work. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get mapping!

Done-For-You Online Drone Day

Wouldn’t it be nice this year to have someone come in, get your students really excited about STEM, teach them how to use drones, and how to solve problems and code real-world missions?

Just when you thought educational school programs were a relic of the ‘before COVID-19 world’, we are dialling in to your school online with our Done-For-You Drone Day. 

Simply have an internet connection and a space for students to fly drones, and we’ll do the rest – it really is that easy

Choose the student + teacher program and we can also teach you how to continue their STEM education with drones. By the end of the day, you’ll learn how to fly drones and how to safely and easily introduce them into your classroom.
